This Gong has a classic Asian look with an incredible sound which you can hear on videos on Facebook page Metz Woodworks. The stand is made from reclaimed white oak from old barns built around the time of the Civil War in Ohio and Pennsylvania. The wood is characterized by tight growth rings, worm holes, and hand hewn marks and pegs from the original barn construction, and checked from the passage of time. Construction is of mortise and tenon joinery with the upper and lower tenons wedged. The finish is hand rubbed oil and bees wax. It stands 49" high and is 40" wide, and weighs around 40 lbs. The gong is 20" in diameter. And a mallet is included.
The gong is very versatile. It can be used to signal the arrival of special guests.... "Lord and Lady So and So...", it can be used to register your opinion of someone's singing, it can also be used to summon children to the table, or simply for the pure beauty and joy of its sound. And besides, who doesn't love to bang a gong?!
I will dismantle it for shipping and crate it up safely so that you will be able to easily assemble it with just a mallet. Please contact me with any questions you may have since there is so much to say about this gong. Free shipping to locations in the United States. Thank you, Rudy
