The following hourglasses ( sand timers) are custom made by myself. (Glass is imported.) Various woods will be used as availability dictates. If you would like to choose your favorite type of wood, just let me know and I will do my best to locate and handcraft to your specifications. Times can be adjusted to suit your needs. Sand is available in several colors and on custom orders only. The sand colors are, blue, mauve, green, yellow, pink, red, orange and white. Unless otherwise stated white will be used. For those of you who keep a 50 minute hour I can adjust time accordingly. For an additional $25.00 I can add what you want in place of sand or sand you may have and want put in a glass. I have done sand from all over the world. Urns are available too. A custom glass may have to be made but just about anything is possible. Engraving can be done as well. Most all of the custom glasses can be sent in kit form to add sand yourself. Since the options for the custom glasses are so many ( wood type, sand color, run time, inlay etc.) I will need to be sure all the information is correct. If the add to cart button is not next to the desired piece you will have to call and place your order. The larger and unique glasses will still need to be phoned in as shipping cost vary on those. There should be a place to send me a note when you are checking out your order. Please use that area to specify your choice of wood type as well as sand color and runtime for your custom glass.
