Commissioned wood spin station hand turned from walnut responsibly sourced here in Bourbon County, Kentucky. The collector requested enough clearance between the outer storage ring and where the lens sits to accommodate 1″ to 1.3″ tops. Additionally, he asked that where the lens sits be recessed 1.5 to 2cm.
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 station 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.
