Ironwood burl for a Londinium R lever espresso machine. The customer did not want the end cap in the lever handle which is required to rub the bolt through. Instead, he is going to epoxy the handle right onto the lever shaft.

Hi Dave,

I wonder if you ever produced knobs / paddle / etc for the Linea Mini or the newer Linea Micra. I much prefer your work & wood options than that of the few companies I've seen with kits for these machines.

Cheers

Teak, real teak from Burma was the prized wood for centuries due to its strength, weather resistance, and workability. It is a naturally oily wood with a unique aroma that reminds me of nutmeg and cinnamon with a variety of other nondescript warm spices in the background. The wood will take on a deeper, warmer tone and develop an iridescence in the grain with time.

Niche Zero grinder base, tumbler holder, and feet in teak with a matching portafilter and group head stud for a Decent Espresso machine.
