【COLLECTIBLE】Boxwood Specimen Stand
We asked recorder and traverso maker Kiyoto Hoshika to make this boxwood 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.
Boxwood is a high-grade wood used for recorders, etc. It has been used as a material since the beginning of the Baroque era, and is a standard material loved by many makers.
The stand is made of boxwood, a hard wood with fine grain, painted dark brown and finished with linseed oil, which is also used for making recorders.
The massive and classic atmosphere makes the pearls stand out beautifully.
It is a unique specimen stand made for pearls, with beautiful curves and the beautiful grain of the wood, very delicately handcrafted.
A stand made of maple is also available in a different color.
