Sweetwoods Needlecase, Single Bloodwood

An easy favorite, this combination pulls together THREE woods: bloodwood is the larger portion, with a slim sandwich of maple tucked with a side of purpleheart. Bloodwood has sedate graining with a punch of rich red-brown color. Purpleheart is a delicious hardwood that naturally oxidizes a muted red-violet when cut and finished. Although the images show more than one needlecase to show the variability of the finished pieces, the price is for one only. Let us choose one for you!

A sweet combination of pieced woods for a luxury needle keep ... each is assembled from two to three woods with a thin line of deep black veneer to mark the division plus a hand-rubbed finish of sealer and paste wax for a silky touch. The single needlecase will keep track of sharp quilting or beading needles or even the blunt tapestry needles for canvas needleworkers. Without question, it is a sweet treat for the devoted needleartist. Splendid gift for a secret pal or as a stocking stuffer! Use several needlecases in different woods for various sizes or types of needles.

The average dimension of a single needlecase is 5/8 x 1 x 2-7/8 inches; since each piece is individually fashioned, dimensions will vary slightly. Depth of storage is about 2-1/2 inches with comfortable room for up to 2-inch length needles to give allowance for the cork stopper. By the way, did you know that cork is a type of oak and is one of the most renewable of commercial woods?
