Handmade museum quality memory
box, made with Crotch Walnut and trimed with Macassar Ebony. All solid 3/4" thick, 14 coats lacquar, sanded, buffed to
musical instrument quality. This type of figure results from the weaving together of wood fibers
strengthening the area around major limbs and branches. The tree must exceed 200 years old to produce this beautiful
figuring and is only found in western United States, consequently very rare. Brusso quadrant hinges, high quality lock,
makes this keepsake box something to love and display as a family heirloom for many generations. The Latin name for
Macassar Ebony is Diospryus celibica. Diospyros, in Latin, originally meant “fruit of the God’s”
and is referenced in Ezekiel 27:15. A wood of great importance World wide that has been used by many Kings.
