Winifred is a cherry handmade wood bowl that I turned on my lathe. For this piece I used wood sustainably sourced in nearby Fayette County, Kentucky. What makes this bowl particularly striking, I believe, is the outer bark, inner bark, and light sapwood features which are contrasted against the darker heartwood.
This cherry handmade wood bowl measures approximately 6-3/4″ wide, 2-1/2″ tall, and 2-1/4″ deep. I polished this piece with food safe Terra Nova NaturOil after which I applied a coating of beeswax to provide added protection. 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.
