Karri Tray Box with a Zebrano (Zebrawood) Top

Item # CB157

A generously sized Karri box with a removable tray and a top featuring an African Zebrano (Microberlinia brazzavillensis) veneered panel.

Karri is Western Australia's tallest tree with one named the 'Stewart' tree being estimated at 350 years old and 85 metres in height.

Zebrano, which is also commonly called Zebrawood, is a very attractive African timber not commonly seen in Australia making the combination of timbers in this box pretty much unique.

The box inner base and tray is lined with upholstery grade velvet material. The specialist box hinges hold the lid in the open position at just over 90 degrees. Its dimensions are 300mm x 185mm x 100mm high.

The tray is made from Tasmanian Oak and is divided into three sections.

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.

ZEBRANO (Microberlinia brazzavillensis)

Zebrano or Zebrawood has heartwood that is a light brown or cream color with dark blackish brown streaks vaguely resembling a zebra’s stripes. Depending on whether the wood is flatsawn or quartersawn, the stripes can be either chaotic and wavy (flatsawn), or somewhat uniform (quartersawn).
