Rae is a covered wooden bowl that I hand turned on my lathe. The bowl itself is made from cherry wood, the lid is spalted maple, and the hand-carved finial is walnut. I used cherry and walnut woods responsibly sourced right here in Bourbon County, Kentucky, while the spalted maple is from adjacent Scott County.
Without the lid, the covered wooden bowl measures approximately 4-3/4″ wide by 2″ tall with an interior width of 3-7/8″ and a depth of 1-5/8″. With the lid, the measurements are 5-1/8″ wide by 4-3/4″ tall (including finial).
I finished the wood with high friction polish to bring out natural colors, grain, and tone. Additionally, 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.
