【COLLECTIBLE】Maple Specimen Stand
We asked recorder and traverso maker Kiyoto Hoshika to make this maple specimen stand for us to display our COLLECTIBLE PEARL.
It is made using a wood lathe, the same method used to make woodwind instruments, where the wood is rotated while being cut.
Maple is a wood used for recorders, etc. It is smooth to the touch and has a silky sheen.
In order to prevent the color of the wood from becoming too dark, it is finished without oil coating, so the whitish color of the maple complements the color of the pearls beautifully.
A unique specimen stand made for pearls, with beautiful curves made by very delicate handwork and attractive wood grain.
A stand made of boxwood is also available in different colors.

The maple specimen stand is finished without painting (no oil). The wood has been shaved to shape after it has dried sufficiently, so it is unlikely to crack, but it will easily soak up moisture and oil. When cleaning the product, wipe it with a dry cloth. If the product gets dirty, wipe it with a wet cloth wrung tightly and dry it thoroughly.
