Walnut Wood Plate, GALEN, a Food Safe Hand Turned Wooden Serving Dish

Walnut Wood Plate, GALEN, a Food Safe Hand Turned Wooden Serving Dish

  • Handmade
  • Materials: Wood

Galen is a walnut wood plate that was hand turned on my lathe. The walnut wood was sustainably sourced here in Bourbon County, Kentucky. The contrast of the light sapwood against the dark heartwood make this plate a truly unique piece. A small sliver of inner bark is still visible on the edge of one side of the plate.

The plate is 7-7/8" in diameter and 15/16" tall.

The plate's surface was polished with Terra Nova NaturOil which is food safe, FDA approved, kosher, environmentally friendly, non-toxic, free of dyes, perfumes, and nut oils that can cause allergic reactions, and protects against drying, cracking, and water damage. The NaturOil was followed by a coating of beeswax which is applied for added protection. The underside of the plate was finished with high friction polish.

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 try to use mostly found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky, incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.

What a beautiful bowl! The care it took in chosing the wood and turning the bowl is very apparent. And the handwritten note was a great personal touch! I have this bowl in a special spot in my entryway so I see it every time I come home.

Arrived safely and quickly. The beautiful woodworking is so much more apparent in person. It's balanced and lightweight in profile and from the top. I bought it for myself when I finally get out of perpetual renting and into my first home as a future housewarming gift (couldn't resist). Thank you!
