This handcrafted hair pin is made from Laburnum wood. It has a rich hue with fine dark heart wood grain running down the length of the piece. It is a very strong pin.
Laburnum wood is a stunning wood found in southern Europe and here in the UK. Prized by furniture makers and luthiers this beautiful deep grained wood is often used for veneers. It is one of the few woods we have in the UK that feels and behaves like rosewood. Cross cut sections of this wood called 'oysters' have been used to make furniture for centuries. A stunning tree and a gorgeous wood, it never fails to impress. This piece was salvaged from a very old tree that had fallen in a storm in 2012. I've saved as much of the old dear as I could and I can't wait to see what further wonders lie beneath the bark.
