West Australian Karri Box with Curly Jarrah Top

Item # CB153

A generously sized Karri box with a removable tray and a top featuring dark curly Jarrah veneer.

Karri (eucalyptus diversicolor) is Western Australia's tallest tree with one named the 'Stewart' tree being estimated at 350 years old and 85 metres in height. The timber is often indistinguishable from Jarrah and a bushman's test involves the burning of a splinter. Karri leaves a white ash and Jarrah black or grey ash.

The box inner base and tray is lined with upholstery grade velvet. The lid is hinged such that it stops at just over 90 degrees. Its dimensions are 295 mm x 180 mm x 100 mm high.

The tray is divided into two sections and is in a contrasting dark colour Jarrah.

The box pictured is the one being purchased.

KARRI (Eucalyptus diversicolor)

Unique to Western Australia, the Karri is one of the tallest trees in the world growing up to around 80 metres in height. The timber ranges from a pale pink through to reddish brown. It is frequently used as a structural timber because of its availability in long straight lengths.

JARRAH (Eucalyptus marginata)

With its beautiful rich colours, interesting grain and occasional gum veins, Jarrah remains one of the world’s most desirable and sought after hardwoods. The tree grows to a majestic 40 metres in height only in the south west corner of Western Australia.
