Full Description:
We offer 2 inlaid compass rose hardwood cases.  The hardwood boxes feature a handsome inlaid compass rose made from two different species of beautiful hardwood.  Inlaying hardwood is an old time-honored art that requires considerable talent, patience, and precision to create a beautiful one-of-a-kind piece.  The inlayer must chisel out the surface of the wood in the shape of the design that will be inlaid, and then precisely hand cut each individual piece of thin wood and fit it into the hollowed out section.  As each compass rose is inlaid into the hardwood box using similar hand tools to those used 200 years ago, each case is unique and will have slight variations.  The cases are lined with felt.  The large is 4 inches (10 cm) square, 2 inches (5 cm) tall and weighs 6.3 ounces (178 g). The small is 3 inches (7.6 cm) square, 1 1/2 (3.8 cm) inches tall and weighs 3.6 ounces (100 g).
