The design challenge criteria was to design something - anything - Raw+Unfiltered. The rules were simple: use natural materials and natural processes to what degree possible. I found a maple branch - already dry and seasoned - in my own back yard. I "milled" the tiny log into tiny slabs and hand formed - using no power tools - the largest of the flat, front-facing pieces as well as the back piece. The smaller, flat, front-facing pieces are macassar ebony and East Indian rosewood. The part that goes through the sleeve was formed with a variety of saws and files, as well as hand sanding. I cut a key in the top, into which the rosewood peg fits. All the components fit snuggly together and are held only by friction. No glues, epoxies or manufactured fasteners were used.

These are, at least for the time being, one of a kind. These were rather labor intensive, and, even if I attempt another pair, they won't be exactly the same.
