Solid Padauk Hourglass With Smooth Spindles


Continue Shopping or Checkout

This custom Signature Collection hourglass is handcrafted from solid padauk wood grown in Africa. The color is a redish-brown, often with dark stripes. It is moderately hard and heavy with a medium texture and large pores and a very smooth surface. An elegant and unique wood, it's redish brown color will deepen as the wood ages, taking on an antique look. If exposed to prolonged periods of direct sunlight it will turn a beautiful golden brown. Combined with glass bulbs hand-blown in England, this piece is beautiful.

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

Excellent service we felt very comfortable using!


The wood used to create the hourglass was beautifully finished. I absolutely love the whole look. The instructions on how to assemble are a bit confusing. Overall I am very impressed.

Fast service. I was worried about ordering too late to use for my wedding but it came with plenty of time to spare.

Perfect gift

This was a gift unlike any other. It was a very very special tribute to a special person.

I was in contact with a customer service person two or three times. They were able to answer my questions in a timely manner and were very helpful.
