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 descendants. 12 coats of Acrylic
lacquer, sanded, and buffed. Beautiful high quality wooden box with large Brusso quadrant hinges.
Received the box today. It is not only beautiful,
but a fine piece of artwork. Thanks so much.
