The material it self is a variety of wood types, oak, poplar and mahogany prevail with a scattering of hickory, maple, cherry pine and miscellaneous other types at any given time. The material is milled, shaped and water drainage grooves carefully machined in and then sanded. Some recycled material can also be seen. All material processing is done on our own manufacturing facility (an un air conditioned two car garage) and the bulk material is carefully stored (on the patio) until needed. All wood working operations are performed by a skilled staff of one. The soap dish is designed to fit in a standard bathroom, kitchen or dressing room soap container and will allow moisture to drain off thus protecting your soap from turning into a mass of goo.
There are no wood finishes that can be considered viable for a soap dish used in it’s natural environment. Wet. Thus there are no finishes applied. Each soap dish is carefully sanded. A color change can be considered normal and occasionally there will be an interaction between the wood and the soap used. This is to be expected and both normal and harmless.
As these soap dishes are manufactured out of a variety of initial products, any single order will be similar to the picture with coloration and grain a function of the wood itself. Any purchase of 2 or more will be a selection of wood types with representative differences. The types of wood with in any given order will be randomly selected.
Wood is a natural product and this soap dish can be considered rustic in nature. But as wood is a natural product some soap dishes may exhibit some flaws in the appearance. In some circles these flaws are considered decorative. If you wish to have these types of soap dishes please contact through the convo system to arrange for a special order.
