West Australian Karri Box with a Mahogany Veneer Top

Item # CB154

A Karri box with a Mahogany veneered lid panel and a generous open space that provides for plenty of storage room.

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 is lined with teal coloured upholstery fabric. The lid is hinged such that it stops at just over 90 degrees. Its dimensions are 295 mm x 180 mm x 75 mm high.

The decorative corner keys of the box are in contrasting Tasmanian Oak.

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.


Mahogany is a highly regarded reddish-brown timber of three tropical hardwood species of the genus Swietenia. They are indigenous to the Americas and are part of the pantropical chinaberry family. Mahogany is highly prized due to its beautiful figure, colour and durable nature.
