DINARA is a modern serving dish that I hand turned on my lathe from rainbow tulip wood responsibly sourced in nearby Franklin County, Kentucky. Worm holes are visible in the wood, and I reinforced any naturally occurring knots and cracks that you see.
This piece is unlike anything I’ve made to date, and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. with it I am exploring the idea of petals or of peeling back layers.
This modern serving dish measures approximately 11-5/8″ wide by 2-1/8″ tall, and 1-5/8″ deep. I polished the bowl with food safe walnut oil followed by a coating of beeswax and carnauba wax to provide a durable finish and rich luster. 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.
