The neck is carved out of long-leaf pine that has for the last hundred years held up the roof of a warehouse here in town. When the building was gutted last year I got my hands on some of the beams and have been using the wood for a lot of projects. I love the smell of it, and the feel of it too. It has a lovely warm tone, and the smell is a hot old attic, nostalgic and comforting.
