Solid Cherry Wood Hourglass With Smooth Spindles


Continue Shopping or Checkout

This custom Signature Collection hourglass is handcrafted from solid cherry wood grown in the United States. Reddish brown with a golden luster, this wood becomes darker and richer with age. It is a finely textured wood that is strong and fairly durable. Combined with glass bulbs hand-blown in England, this classic piece adds a striking accent to any room.

As with all wood each piece will vary slightly in graining and color making each hourglass unique. Hourglasses are handmade so sizes are approximate.

Accuracy of Hourglass

Just wanted to provide some feedback on the timing accuracy of the hourglass. The advertised accuracy is within +/- 10% which would be 6 minutes variance (over 60 min) and the hourglass seems to be mostly within this range.

Over multiple tests, at different temperatures, the temperature seems to be the controlling factor in how accurate in timing the hourglass/sand timer runs.

50F = within 3 minutes (60 min hour)
80F = within 7 minutes (60 min hour)

30F (degrees temp variance)
4 minutes (timing variance)

The very approximate rule of thumb, appears to be:
For every 7.5F degrees
The hourglass runs 1 minute quicker (shorter in time)

Thank you for sharing!

I am so happy with this hourglass, it is absolutely stunning and a beautiful addition to my cherry table. The craftsmanship is flawless and beautiful. Thank you so much to the craftsman for his skill and quality work. This person cares about what they create and the love shows. Most definitely worth the cost.

Thank you for your kind words and the lovely picture!

Not as big as I had hoped. But still very nice. Engraving done perfectly.


It would have been nice to get a little bit bigger one for the price we paid. But the hourglass looks nice. Also would have liked to have gotten a funnel along with it.

Service was prompt.
