Made from the local wood Juniperus Bermudiana
Craftsmen fashion this prized wood into a selection of small souvenirs
Juniperus Bermudiana once covered the Islands it was badly attacked by insect scale in 1940s and has almost become extinct. Bermudians have used the wood for centuries in the construction of ships, homes and furniture. Wood from trees which are dead is used for small articles as seen here. The aroma from the cedar is said to be moth repellent, the shavings are used to make sachets for putting amongst clothes, in closets and drawers.
To maintain the luster of this wood it should be waxed as you would furniture.
