The wood is Mountain Laurel. It has some epoxy poured into the naturally occurring checking areas. The owl is made from spoons and butter knives. The moon is tissue paper and glue affixed to an embroidery hoop. The turn style power switch is mounted behind the moon. The outer hoop is from a 55 gallon drum. I have retained the small blemishes and dents in the hoop. I ground off all of the old finish and then applied primer and 2 coats of gloss black paint. I Welded washers on the top for wall mounting. You can hang it from the washers or tie picture wire to each washer and hand it that way. NOTE: Buyer will have to pay for shipping.
