The Oregon Myrtle-wood tree grows uncultivated, only
in a small area along the Pacific Coast.
No large stands of this unique tree are to be found. Nearly all of the remaining
Myrtle-wood is scattered in small groves throughout the lower valleys along the rivers of Southwestern Oregon and
the southern Pacific Coast. Centuries are required to grow a Myrtle-wood tree large enough to yield board-lumber.
A time may come when the supply of highly figured Myrtle-wood will be depleted and the manufacturing of the articles
from this wood may cease. The highly-prized pieces of today will be handed down through generations, as heirlooms
which will be preserved for us by our descendent's. Highly figured all solid 3/4" thick Myrtle wood memory/keepsake
box with Macassar Ebony trim. Dovetail construction, Brusso quadrant hinges, makes this keepsake box something to
love and display as a family heirloom for many generations. 12 coats of acrylic lacquer, sanded and buffed to musical
instrument quality. 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.
