Kipling is a round wooden tray that I hand turned on my lathe from hackberry wood. For this piece I used wood responsibly sourced in nearby Franklin County, Kentucky. Bark inclusions, small natural cracks, and a knot hole have been reinforced but left otherwise natural. The knot hole in the center of the platter goes all the way through, so the vessel is not suitable for liquids but is small enough to not let most other things fall through unless they are smaller than the size of an average blueberry.
This round wooden tray measures approximately 15-1/2″ wide, 1-3/8″ tall, and 7/8″ deep. I polished the wood with food safe walnut oil followed by a blend 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.
