live edge Bradford pear


Another commissioned piece, I hand turned this wood spin base for a precision spinning top collector. She requested a piece with a small footprint to conserve space. Using Bradford pear wood responsibly sourced in Franklin County, Kentucky, I was able to preserve the live edge. The Bradford pear tree may be a nuisance, but its wood certainly is beautiful.

I polished the wood with food safe walnut oil followed by carnauba and beeswax to provide a durable finish and rich luster. I designed this wood spin base to hold a 100mm double concave glass optical lens with a 300mm focal length and 10mm thickness.

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. Learn more about me and my shop here.
