AGEE is a live edge turned wood plate hand turned from Bradford pear responsibly sourced in nearby Franklin County, Kentucky. Many people are surprised to hear that a “nuisance” tree like Bradford Pear can be so beautiful when turned.
This particular piece of wood comes from the portion of the tree where a branch meets the trunk (also known as “crotch wood”). Pieces such as this tend to have swirling grain and irregular figure, which makes them especially compelling visually. All naturally occurring cracks and knots have been reinforced.
This live edge turned wood plate is 10″ wide and 7/8″ high. I polished the piece with high friction polish to enhance the natural changes in coloring, tone, and grain in the wood.
Care instructions are included with the purchase of this piece.

A little about me….
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I primarily use found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky. It’s my hope that incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece serves as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.
