spalted dogwood


Cassandra is a natural edge bowl that I hand turned on my lathe from spalted dogwood responsibly sourced in nearby Franklin County, Kentucky.

Every now and then I luck onto an exceptionally gorgeous piece of wood, and this is one of those occasions. I’m told that this dogwood tree lived a long life and was a cherished gem gracing Shelby Street in Kentucky’s capital city with its beautiful pink flowers every spring. I feel privileged to be able to give the tree a second life where hopefully it continues to bring joy to those that see it.

A few worm holes are visible in the wood, which combined with the natural edge and dramatic spalting make this a very one-of-a-kind piece. I reinforced a small natural crack in the base, common with wood such as this.

This natural edge bowl measures approximately 5-1/4″ wide, 2-5/8″ high, and 2-1/4″ deep. I finished the wood with Terra Nova NaturOil followed by a protective coating of beeswax.

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.

Creekview Woodshop donates a portion of every sale to Green Forests Work, a nonprofit dedicated to re-establishing healthy and productive forests on formerly mined lands in Appalachia.
