Hala is a turned wood box with a lid that I made on my lathe. I handmade the bowl from Bradford pear wood and the lid is spalted maple with a hand-carved figured walnut wood finial. All woods are sustainably sourced from here in Central Kentucky.
Without the lid, the bowl measures 5-1/2″ wide, 2-3/4″ tall, and 2-1/4″ deep. With the lid (including the finial), the bowl is 6″ tall. I finished all of the woods on this turned wood box with a lid with high friction polish to bring out the natural color, grain, and tone. Finally, I include care instructions 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.
