The teardrop has a vertical grain fir reclaimed wood from a 200 year old beam from a San Francisco warehouse that housed people after the 1906 earthquake. The hourglass style is made with Kentucky cherry it’s the most traditional style I make . Both are finished with gunstock oil 3 drops of oil and three days of rubbing.
