The Little Apple Collection is named after the literal translation of the Spanish word Manzanita. Manzanita grows small red berries, which look like tiny little apples. This collection was derived from a friend who works at our local community college. The college was growing and thus one large old Manzanita tree was uprooted for the cause of education.
I was delighted to take the wood and give it another life. Manzanita is a very hard and durable wood. The outer bark is sometimes kept for its rich contrast and patterns. The inside heart wood is deep red. It grows very, very slow, is dense and hard and grows in very strange twisting patterns.
This piece has been brought through over 7 sanding steps! From powerful machine sanders to fine hand sanding and polishing. This dock has been coated with a combination of beeswax, carnauba wax, and orange oil. This enhances the natural beauty and depth of grain in finished woods. This blend prevents further drying of the wood and deterioration of the finish.
*This piece comes with two 6 foot USB cords that will sync or charge your iPad & iPhone / iPod. Every piece is tested for sync and charge capabilities for USB to computer connectivity and wall plug connection as well. The iPad stand is designed to rest snugly and at the correct angle without a case or skin. This dock has been designed to view your iPad in both portrait or landscape view.
I hope you enjoy my work and purchase a handmade piece from the Little Apple Collection.
