Holly is used for inlays for expensive furniture, imitation ivory piano keys and for other decorative uses. It's pretty expensive & can also be hard to source. As such I've not tried Holly until now, now that I have I like this wood a lot.
The Holly knob below has NO color added to it, this is finished only with clear lacquer.
$89, includes shipping to the lower 48 and your choice of shift pattern sticker (of those that I have in stock) I have enough Holly to make a matching e-Brake handle for an additional $69.
