Rustic Northern Elm or ash so I am told is reclaimed with some reall nice grain and colors had some pinks coming through during the turning as well and may come back with age as well .

makes great paper weight and bowl as well .

they are cut Ruff style sanded down to 180 grit -220
then 2 coats of Tung oil is applied over a weeks time thinned with a citrus solvent both are food safe EPA/FDA direct food contact

Then a finale few coats of UV NON toxic Hard coat are applied

Our TUNG OIL finish is the Finest grade in the world made by Milk Products we carry both the regular and dark color ,( comes from south America) . This is not the same garbage you buy in big box retail stores theirs if lucky has 20% tung oil rest is drying agents additives fillers emulsifiers..
OUR tung oil ingredient list is simple Tung oil 100%

I have 2 one star rating both are from same circle
1st one came after 2 months, to the date of sale the flute was Clearly labeled “beginner “ I sent a second flute of choice asked to call for a Live sound play but was “to Busy “ I spent a day re tuning to a Intermediate level play,
still wanted a return ,stated she had others play it and a “Professional play the flute” this made it a used flute. I could not take it back . At that point .
Through her emails she said was vacationing at a place where the second one star came from . I got a order just after the return request came in . The day that the Flute arrived I got a one star review with a . set of poor quality workmanship yet I use 75.00 a gallon USA made NON Toxic two types A treatment for the wood then a treatment to protect the wood UV finish . Professional leather grade baseball gloves.
He tried to contact me by phone .I never got a missed call . He never emailed me . He tried to file with ETSY . I contacted ETSY support by Phone they replied they have no such record .
I did find out however they are Very Much so supporters of the Democratic Party and Anti Trump . They also have posted I am told On Face Book pages That I am A President Trump Supporter and that You should not buy off of me . This is the reason for the one star reviews.

With this said I am Glad I support President Trump MY web site is up 216% from last year and Never in 57 years have I live in 1% growth until President Obama .I would still be a Nurse If not for the Mugging of Illegals that put me in a coma for 3 days and ICU for 18 and ended my continuing education for a masters in molecular Bio to work for the CDC
SO yes I am a Proud supporter of President Trump and Use Only USA made products when I can regardless of the prices

i make these up from wood reclaimed left over from my other projects . If they are stained i use a non toxic hard finish if they are natural I use 100% tung a fresh coat is applied just prior to shipping.
I sell these products to help to resupply my goods to donate products to VA hospitals Nursing Homes and Animal rescues . I take boxes fill them up and either ship them to the place through out the country or here local in Houston TX
Depending on the product and time of year I may ship it with real wood shavings to protect it from temperatures during travel
What makes my products different from many others is I hand pick every piece of wood where people look at the wood say fire place I see beauty, a project to give some one else happiness since it gave me pleasure to make the product as well .
I love what I do waking up having coffee a lab/pit mix joins in the shop after licking my face for 5 minutes . I spend the rest of my day working in the shop . Only thing better was when I was nursing ,that ended when I was mugged became disabled .
