Sorry, this item sold. Have Ampstrike make something just for you, or try these other items:
This one is made of beautiful and dense plum wood.
This handmade item is more than 5 inch in length (5,43 in/ 13,8cm), width (widest point) 0,26in/6,5mm, thickness (widest point) 0.16in/4mm.
Buyer receives the same item shown on the pictures.
Plum is especially suitable for this type of tools. Closed grain wood, very dense and strong and also flexible - just as one perfect wooden needle has to be ;)
This plum wood comes from an old garden which needed to be renewed.
Making useful things out of these old trees, like this wooden needle, looked much more reasonable than using this beautiful wood as barbecue trunks.
I carefully polish all my items with utmost care. I guarantee silky smooth finish for all of my items.
No copy leaves my workbench without most careful control!
This needle is finished with Borma Wachs Hard Furniture Oil - http://bormawachs.it/prodotto.php?tp_id=5&id=49&lingua=2
For maintenance - beeswax or beeswax/carnuba wax lotions/ paste would be the best.

- heartwood can exhibits a cornucopia of colors, ranging from a yellowish brown, with streaks of pink, orange, red, purple, olive, or gray mixed in
- has a fine texture with close grain and a slight natural luster
- has a distinct scent while being worked that is reminiscent of pumpkin or squash.
