McKinley is a hand turned wood box made from spalted maple with a cherry lid and ebony finial. I used responsibly sourced spalted maple and cherry woods from here in Central Kentucky. The ebony came to us from a woodturner who retired his lathe and the wood he collected over the years.
With the lid, the bowl measures 5-3/4″ wide by 3-1/4″ tall (including the finial). Without the lid, the bowl is approximately 5-3/4″ wide by 1-1/4″ tall, with an interior measurement of 5-1/8″ wide x 3/4″ deep.
All of the woods comprising this hand turned wood box are finished with high friction polish to enhance their natural color, grain, and tone. Additionally, 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.
