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 Customer Service

We recently purchased a Solid Padauk Hourglass for our granddaughter. We wanted to use it to help teach her the value time. We had the hourglass custom engraved.

We received a beautiful well made product that can last a lifetime.

But more than the quality of the Item we appreciated the exceptional purchasing experience. Buying items on-line is often a hit or miss situation when it comes to service. We was happy that the folks at JustHourglass made it feel like purchasing from a local shop. They provided us with fast, professional and personal E-mails to make the shopping one of the best On-Line. Thank You. Sam & Miriam

100% Perfect

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 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!
