Description

A small cylindrical box, suitable for holding toothpicks, matches, or whatever little doodads you like. Made from the stump of a cherry tree sapling that was cut down by beavers. The lid presses into place and fits snuggly, so you can pick it up by the lid. The lid is also keyed to the lower portion so you can only put it on the right way around, with the bark matching, and this makes the seam between the lid and the body of the box almost invisible. As you can see, both the bark and the exposed wood of this piece have wonderful textures and colors, and the beaver-chewed top has an elegant shape. The wood where the beaver chewed through the tree has been exposed to light and air long enough to develop the beautiful orange-brown color that cherry wood is prized for. Finished with polyurethane and lacquer.

In case you want to use this little box to hold wooden matches, I'll include a round piece of peel-and-stick match striking paper. This can be stuck onto the bottom of the box to light either safety or strike-anywhere matches.

The outer dimensions are 5 inches (13 cm) tall and about 1-3/4 inches (4.5 cm) in diameter. The inside dimensions are 2-1/2 inches (6.5 cm) deep and 1-1/4 inches (3 cm) in diameter.

This box will be a charming and unique addition to any setting, no matter what use you put it to. It would be ideal for holding fireplace matches in a vacation cabin, or as a sweet reminder of the natural world for holding paperclips at an office desk.
