cocobolo (top), quilted maple (handle) and canarywood (base/bottom). Walnut is from North America and cocobolo is from Mexico and Central America canarywood is from Brazil. Quilted maple has a shimmery quality in the light and is also from North America.
All my pieces are solid hardwood obtained from small family owned lumber mills where my daughter and I are allowed to go in the back and select our own boards for their color, interest and grain.
I use no coloring or stains in the finish as I feel that "Mom" (Mother Nature) does a better job in that regard than I could do. All my pieces are finished with clear tung oil and wax.
This piece is 4 ¼” tall, excluding the handle 3 ¼” square. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me and I will usually reply the same day, depending on the time of day of your message. By the way, the piece underneath showing in some pics is just a photo prop.
Thanks for stopping by the lake.
