Solid Granadillo Wood Hourglass With Smooth Spindles

TWG332-1

Continue Shopping or Checkout

This custom Signature Collection hourglass is handcrafted from solid granadillo wood grown in Central America and is the newest in our Signature lineup. A beautiful wood, its denseness makes it very strong and durable and it finishes very smoothly. The color is a rich reddish brown with black streaking. Like all wood, granadillo varies in graining and color - no two are alike. Combined with glass bulbs hand-blown in England, this classic piece is stunning.

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

NEW! 6x10 size now available with 50 minute globe

Worth the Effort

I really wanted to make this work with my own sand, but the glass was pretty unforgiving. After four tries, I finally found a sieve that filtered down to a compatible size, a 0.355 MM filter available from walmart.com (https://www.walmart.com/ip/10-100Mesh-Aperture-Lab-Standard-Test-Sieve-Stainless-Steel-200mm-Practical/182944983). Learned that sand that is *too small* will also clog the hourglass, so I poured the sand between bowls outside on a windy day to blow away the dust. Finally the hourglass works as reliably as I'd hope. The wood carving was impeccably machined -- only use a tiny layer of wood glue. Use too much and the dowels won't fit all the way into the holes. Took some work, but I am very happy with the results!

Worked as Described

The hourglass worked the the minute, was about 2 or three seconds off from the time, so very good. Got a small note about who made the glass, not expected but fun to read about. No nicks or cracks, well packed and came within two weeks. Might not like it if you don;t like dark woods, but has a nice streaks running up and down the length of the wood in black a lighter shade of the brown and darker shade. Has a rich texture and lots of little rivers of color though it. Lets me know when the mortals timeline is up. Will buy about 7 billion more.

Great product!

Hand crafted, beautiful wood, clearly made with love and care. Slightly smaller than expected but I think it adds to the charm. I opted for engraving also which turned out perfect. Highly reccomended!!
