This iPhone/ Android Stand has a special kind of story. This distinct looking stand is extraordinary without exception. It has been created from a single piece of Reclaimed Oak which came from a building originally built in the late 1800's somewhere in the Northeastern part of the US. That's a pretty significant artifact? You can definitely see the difference in the grain of the wood in the older piece of oak vs wood from an oak tree grown and harvested today. Not to mention the special markings in the wood where it had previously been used in a building structure which gives it that unique character. Once the stand had been cut and shaped into its present form, it was hand sanded to a very smooth finish. Multiple applications of Quality, hard Tung oil was applied with sanding between coats, resulting in an exquisite gloss luster.
