All wood is found or reused. The body is Flowering Plum "Black Knot" from my back yard. The red tip is Redwood Burl from a home made end table I saved from going to the dump. The black tip is Ironwood I found on my Grandfathers property in the Mojave Desert. The stand is a slice of the Black Knot. My goal is to scavage wood not to buy it.
