Center wood is Black Walnut with the outside wood being old Cypress wood. The Cypress was 200 yrs old when cut, and the tree was cut in 1902! So we are talking about a really rare find with wood that you just can't find in this market now days! The hooks are made of bronze and are of high quality. The Black Walnut has a natural stain but the Cypress has none. It measures 38"x10"x1"
