South American Ziricote & Koa Box with Sliding Tray by Val Dziagwa 7.5″H x 20″W x 11.75″D $1480

From the Artist

The wood used to make this box is Ziricote from South America. The medallion panel, handle and slip feathers (in the corners of the box an lid) are made from Curly Koa from Hawai’i.

The corners are constructed with slip feathers which strengthen the joint while lending themselves to the esthetics of the design.

Keep your box out of direct sunlight and wax it with any good paste wax or polish. This box has been oiled with two coats of Danish oil, and waxed with two coats of Carnauba wax. The finish is hand rubbed and machine buffed.

The pins retaining the lid are steel with Ziricote dowels covering them.

Thanks, Val

Ziricote

Ziricote is one of the most popular, visually striking exotic woods in the world. Renown for its “landscape” or “spiderweb” grain patterns, its colors range from medium to dark shades of brown (occasionally with either a green or purplish tint), and are accentuated by intermingled bands of unpredictable, irregular black growth rings. Sapwood is easily distinguishable by its dull off-white to pale yellow hue.

Although it is a fairly dense wood, its typical straight (though sometimes slightly interlocked) grains and fine to medium-fine texture give it cooperative working properties — as it cuts, turns, glues and finishes smoothly.
