Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
The bark of this particular case features beautiful raised light brown striations over reddish brown. It also has a few gnarly branch protrusions. I've inlaid a round turquoise blue rhinestone in this one. There's lots of character and beauty in this wood. This particular case will accommodate around 10 - 12 round toothpicks or many needles to about 2 1/2" long.
They're finished with a sealer to bring out the colors in the bark, A cork tops them off. Each case is signed tiny on the bottom. This case is approx. 3 5/16" long, not including the cork, which adds about 1/4". (Toothpicks not included.) I've had mine for years and use it for my needles almost every day. Hubby keeps one in his truck for those toothpick moments.
I make these from black willow that I responsibly collect from my property. Willow is a wonderful renewable resource! I let the wood cure for a year before making the needle cases.
These sturdy eco-friendly cases are great for taking your toothpicks or needles along with you, in pocket, car or sewing basket. They stay secure and won't poke through. Great as a small gift for a toothpick loving man or your favorite sewer, quilter or beader! A handsome sturdy case for any man or woman who appreciates natural beauty.
