Oona is a turned wooden bowl that I made from African mahogany wood. Native to West Africa, African mahogany is a hardwood that tends to darken with age. A friend gifted me this wood and its origin is otherwise unknown. I love playing with shape, and this piece is no exception.
This turned wooden bowl measures 4-3/8″ wide, 2-5/8″ tall, and 2-1/4″ deep. I finished the mahogany wood with high friction polish to enhance the natural changes in coloring, tone, and grain in the wood. Further, 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.
