This custom "One of a Kind" Jewelry Chest is made from Goncalo Alves (Astronium, spp) also know as Tigerwood is boldly striped specie which has an orangish/reddish brown background with wide dark brownish black striping. Found in Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Guatemala, and Mexico. Tigerwood, as the name suggests, is specie which exhibits a wide range of color/striping. The striping can vary from fine lines to bold, brush strokes. The background color can range from light tans to darker orange browns. Tigerwood exhibits a large degree of color change with a pronounced darkening of the background under the stripes from an orangey tan to a deep reddish brown color, which then in turn makes the striping less contrasting and more subtle. This one of the hardest woods you will find. Tigerwood is 170% as hard as red oak (2160 on the Janka scale vs. 1260 for red oak). The ends are banded with Lacewood.The joiner work is "Double box joints" which is very strong and very attractive. There is plenty of room in this Jewelry Chest. Full top tray and below this tray, there are two full trays and storage below them. Removable dividers make arranging compartment easy to hold small to large pieces of Jewelry. Bottom of Chest and all trays are lined with real velvet. All the wood used to make the trays and dividers are natural in colour and consist of Pau Amarillo, Paduak. Holly, Cocobolo, Walnut and Mahogany. A unique "One-of-a-Kind Jewelry Chest" signed and dated. Each Keepsake Box gets 6 to 8 coats of polyurethane oil finish that is "Hand Rubbed" to give them the best finish possible. This Keepsake Chest will become a family heirloom to be passed on to generation to generation, I hope.
