Indigenous to the hot, dry region of southwest Morocco, Thuya burls grow underground on the roots of trees, sprouting new shoots of the main root structures. Thuya wood production is a long-held tradition in Essaouira, Morocco. Local artisans who take extreme pride in their work do the entire process by hand. All tables are handmade so each varies slightly from the next and will have unique characteristics inherent to natural wood. Though the external surfaces are buffed to an impressive smooth high gloss sheen, there may be naturally occurring knotholes, nicks, and other small imperfections in the wood which become a part of each piece character. To make this chest, it takes sometimes a month. It is a long and meticulous art. The first step is to make a chest to which it will give its final shape without ornament. Then the craftsman realizes each small piece of wood that will serve to adorn the chest. Using a file, scissors, he creates small thuya wood pieces. He design with the small pieces the shape on each chest side before applying them over. The brass chain is mounted on the left side attached to the inside of the lid and compartment box to keep the lid from opening too far. The key lock box is not working.
