The photograph of the Myrtle shuttle showing the grain pattern is typical of what you will receive if you order one. Myrtle is much prized by high end furniture makers and turners and takes an absolutely beautiful finish that is second to none. I have, as usual posted a couple of photo's showing Myrtle trees to give you an indication of where the timber comes from. All of my shuttles are given a nicely bevelled edge. The finish is my usual finish, that is sanded down to a 600 grit and then soaked in Tung oil, which is a natural drying oil and which helps to harden the timber prior to buffing. When dry they are buffed through various grades of compound down to a 6000 grit and a final buff with Carnauba wax to give them a good hard wearing finish which should last for several years and gives a really beautiful finish. As usual I strive to produce an item which is of heirloom quality.
