Description

Gain a +3 to your table flair with this exclusive handcrafted dice tray made from sacred Irish yew wood. 

In Irish, yew is called "an Iúr" and is considered sacred in some religions. During the 19th century most yew trees were cut down due to being poisonous to livestock, so finding good stock is particularly difficult. A long-lived tree, yew can grow for over 9000 years with some growing extremely gnarled and twisted. This creates burled wood like we see in this piece, which makes particularly interesting features such as a swirling grains, knots, voids and leaving striking orange or red hues to the wood.
