Unique Multi-Wood Vases & Bowls
By combining different types of wood, you can acheive natural color contrast and beautiful, unusual patterns. Our standard types of wood include Oak, Walnut, Maple, Hickory, Ash & Cherry. Each has its uniquie color characteristics. The very large, very unusual handcrafted multi-wood vase shown to the right combines Cherry, Walnut and Maple. Very precise cutting & gluing is required to acheive the desired effect.
Original Single-Wood Bowls & Vases
Glued up single-wood bowls and vases are functional and decorative part of any home decor. By placing the wood perpendicular to each other, you acheive a unique iridescent striping affect which adds interest The handmade wood bowl to the left is made of solid walnut with beautiful coloring and wood grain. We typically use a very hard polyurethane wood varnish, though we do have a salad-bowl finish available..
Solid-Stock Wood Vases & Bowls
Solid-stock is a term used for vases & bowls handcrafted from a solid 'chunk' of wood (vs glued up board lumber). These can produce unique color paterns and some unusual unexpected wood characteristics. Wood used for these vases and bowls are thoroughly dried befor turning - to reduce the chance of cracking down the line. The beautiful vase to the right is made of Ambrosia Maple and has wonderful natural color paterns.
Custom Handcrafted Wooden Bowls & Vases
We do take custom orders for our handcrated vases and bowls - for a particular type of wood, shape or design, or for multiples of an item, but because each of our bowls & vases is individually handcrafted, no two are ever exactly the same. The unusual vase to the left is made of Maple & Walnut and was custom ordered for the criss-cross pattern acheived by combining the contrasting woods.
Handmade Wooden Nut Bowls
Our individually handcrafted wood nut bowls are a wonderful part of holiday entertaining and make excellet Christmas gifts that will be appreciated for years to come. The one to the right is made of Cherry with a Walnut rim. All of our handmade wooden nut bowls come with a nutcracker & two picks (Party Nut Bowls come with 2 nutcrackers and 4 picks).
