This beautiful piece of hazel wood I harvested in the forests of my native region.
After a long drying time, I started cutting the wood down to symmetry and ergonomics. in that process the deep layers of the wood have come through so beautifully.
With extracted tannic acid from walnuts, I have given the wood even more depth and color.
finally cooked for long-term protection in linseed oil firn, grinded up to 1000 and sealed with hard wax.
