Details

This wood is milled from the familiar landscaping broadleaf evergreen native to the eastern United States. Holly is a close grained, moderately heavy, creamy white wood with almost indistinct growth rings. One of the lightest colored woods, holly is traditionally used in inlays and purflings for the striking contrast it provides. Holly lumber of this quality is rare because of the small stature of the tree and its tendency to stain with blue mold when improperly dried.



  • Ilex opaca


  • Native to eastern United States


  • Dyes easily


  • Turns well and takes a good polish

Werner John is not only a musician, but a man of many talents, including writing, recording, performing and teaching music using his own handcrafted Native American Flutes. As a young boy, Werner found a connection to nature growing up in the New York Hudson River Valley. With artisan parents and grandparents as an example and a woodworking father to learn from, Werner became a carpenter’s apprentice when he was 18, and worked in lumber yards for his college education. In addition to woodworking his other passion was music. As a musician in his 30′s, Werner found himself taking on 12 students left behind by his former Austrian instructor. This confirmed in Werner’s heart and mind that he had something to offer others in music education. He soon finished college and became a teacher, while performing and recording in Ashville, North Carolina.
