catalpa + bloodwood


Ginger is a turned lidded box that I made from sustainably sourced catalpa wood with a bloodwood finial. The catalpa I used is from Franklin County, Kentucky, while the bloodwood is from an offcut. Offcuts are the waste pieces produced by fine furniture makers.

Without the lid, the bowl measures approximately 5-1/2″ wide, 2″ tall, and 1-1/2″ deep. With the lid the bowl is 3-1/2″ tall (and 5-1/2″ tall including the finial). I affixed the finial to the lid with a small brass screw as well as a drop of glue for additional strength.

The wood is finished with high friction polish to enhance its natural color, grain, and tone. Additionally, I include care instructions with the purchase of this turned lidded box.

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. Learn more about me and my shop here.

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.
