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.

From beginning to end, my experience with two hourglass projects was 100% perfect.
I honestly could not be happier. From design to production, everything was just wonderful.
THANK YOU! I would absolutely use justhourglasses.com again!
I am a three time purchaser of hourglasses from Just Hourglasses. I utilize the hourglasses to display sand and soil from historical places. This particular hourglass contains soil from a Civil War prisoner of war camp. The quality and workmanship of the hourglass is outstanding. On this hourglass I had the top laser engraved …… it is perfect. The staff at Just Hourglasses is easy to work with and wants to ensure that you receive a quality item. The Padauk wood is a beautiful warm reddish wood that complements the red clay soil that it now contains. I can not say enough good things about this company, their product and their staff. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY AND THEIR HOURGLASSES. I will be a returning customer in the future.
Thank you so much Allen!
