Our wood bowls are the highest quality available, each handcrafted by skilled craftsmen using a single piece of premium hardwood.
To start, large logs are cut into manageable sections and then the appropriate shape and size to fit a large lathe. Repeated cuts on the lathe produce bowls from 17" across to 9" across.
To reduce scrap, cutting is planned so that the majority of wood from one block becomes a bowl. Bowls smaller than 9" are cut on a smaller lathe.
Once cut each bowl is dried on racks for 20-30 days. Once dry, they are hand sanded on the inside and outside, and a flat bottom is added.
Next, they are individually inspected and graded and bowls that pass inspection are hand rubbed with a natural food-safe preserver made of beeswax and mineral oil. This process enhances the grain and brings out a natural sheen.
The bowl is placed on a drying rack and once dry, is ready for your home.
