INGRID is a turned wood box that I made from cherry with a maple lid and exotic wood finial. I responsibly sourced the cherry and maple woods right here in Central Kentucky.
The cherry came from a 50-year-old slab, giving this vessel its aged look. Wormholes are visible and all cracks are natural and have been reinforced.
The exotic wood used for the finial came to me from a retiring woodturner who no longer needed the wood he’d collected over the years. This piece was an offcut from a furniture maker, making excellent use of wood normally considered waste.
With the lid (including the finial), the bowl measures 5-1/2″ wide by 6-3/4″ tall. Without the lid, the bowl is approximately 5″ wide and 3-1/8″ tall, with an interior measurement of 4-1/8″ wide by 2-1/2″ deep.
I finished the wood with high friction polish to bring out its natural color, grain, and tone. Additionally, care instructions are included with the purchase of this turned wood 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.
