3 1/4" X 3 1/2" Maple Burl lidded mushroom box. Burls of any kind of wood are extremely desirable and very rare. Maple burl is created by an unusual growth on trees that results in a highly figured piece of wood. Heartwood ranges from creamy-white to light brown with swirly & interlocked grain patterns. This piece of maple burl also has a curly pattern known as flamed maple or tiger stripe. Notice that not only is the base hollowed, but top is as well. These mushroom boxes have been inspired by the beauty of natural wood.
