Vernita is a large wooden fruit bowl that I hand turned on my lathe from a more than one-hundred-year old barn beam.
The wood is old-growth Douglas-fir. It had numerous small cracks from age and several knots that I intentionally retained. These are visible on the interior and exterior of the vessel, as well as along the rim, and add to the uniqueness of the piece.
Perfect for holding fruit or serving a large salad, this bowl measures approximately 9-1/2″ in diameter and 4-5/8″ tall (with an interior width of 8-1/2 and a depth of 4″).
I polished this wooden fruit bowl with food safe Terra Nova NaturOil followed by a protective coating of beeswax. As with all of my turned dishes, 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.
