“From a Small Seed in South Texas” is constructed from mesquite that I personally selected at a small mill in south Texas. The sphere is formed by three donuts, one large and two smaller. The endless tube has a triangular cross-section. It’s all mesquite along with a few small pieces of Gabon ebony. Including the stand. Mesquite is a very slow growing tree that somehow survives in a very dry, harsh environment.
