This handmade weaving shuttle is sanded and polished to silky smooth finish, treated with oil and ready to use! This item is finished with Borma Wachs Hard Furniture Oil.
For maintenance - beeswax or beeswax/carnuba wax lotions/ paste would be the best.
The plum wood comes from an old garden which needed to be renewed.
Making useful things out of these old trees, like this shuttle, looked much more reasonable than using this beautiful wood as barbecue trunks.
