Maple Natural Edge Bowl
(061209MapleNE)

The Minor's, who live on Hess Road in Monkton, MD, had an old Maple tree that Bill was about to cut down when a windstorm did it for him. Unfortunately, the tree landed on their house causing a lot of damage. This bowl is make from a piece of that tree. The lighter spots of color in the bowl are 'live' sections while the gray colored wood around it are well seasoned & very dead. As you can see, it was mostly dead. The bark was already peeled off, but the natural edge underneath is preserved as the rim of this bowl. It is finished with several coats of oil based polyurethane.


Maple Bowl

A different Maple tree than the one above, but downed in the same storm on the same farm. This was a healthy tree that just didn't have a solid enough base. It is finished with two light coats of oil based polyurethane. If oiled, it could be used as a salad bowl since it is large enough, measuring about 12 inches in diameter.



Natural Edged, Osage Orange Bowl

Road kill revived! This bowl is made from a tree that was chopped up by a crew clearing the electric lines and left to rot. I drove past it on my way to and from work for several days since there was no where to pull over on the heavily traveled road. That Sunday morning, about 6am, I made a special trip to retrieve it. It is finished with several coats of oil based polyurethane and about 8 inches in diameter. This bowl is for decorative purposes only.


Red Mulberry Bowl

My next door neighbor cut this tree down about 1.5 years ago to make room for a new garage. After a year on the wood pile, this log was sprouting new growth during the wetter parts of the summer. Red Mulberry moves more during drying than most woods that I turn, so I haven't had many successes with it. There is about an inch difference in height around the sides from this movement, giving the bowl a truly unique look. It is about 9 inches in diameter and finished with several coats of oil based polyurethane.


Sycamore Bowl

Turned several months after being cut down on the Smythe Farm in Monkton, MD, this bowl shows some splitting that was carefully glued as I turned it. A real problem, but it was too pretty to give up. It is finished with 8 - 10 coats of oil based polyurethane (I lost count) and is about 11 inches in diameter. This bowl is for decorative purposes only and is certainly decorative, with just a clear coat. The grain is magnificient!

Sycamore Bowl
(061019Sycamore3)

Turned several weeks after being cut down on the Smythe Farm in Monkton, MD, this bowl shows spalting starting. It was a favorite wood of the colonists for eating utensils since it was easy to carve & flavorless. It is finished with several coats of oil based polyurethane. This bowl is for decorative purposes only.


Sycamore Natural Edge Bowl
(061209SycamoreNE)

The Smythes, of Monkton, MD, were forced to take down this huge tree as it was threatening the house. The trunk is 17'9" in circumfrence. The bowl made from a limb is finished several coats of oil based polyurethane.


Walnut Bowl
(060625Walnut)

This tree fell down near the shop at Piney Hollow Farm in Reisterstown, MD. A friend brought me a few pieces to turn. The lighter wood on the edge is the sapwood, a thin, soft band of wood closest to the bark. This bowl is finished with several coats of oil based polyurethane. The rim is chipped slightly in one place from hitting another bowl rim. The sapwood of Walnut is very soft.

Other items such as lazy susans, rolling pins, card holders, carved boxes, candle sticks, woodburnings and such are also available at various times. Email me for availability. I don't generally do custom work, but I often have items around & don't get them on the site. Sometimes a request is a good break, too.
