Handmade Wooden Bowl with Lid, ALEXANDRA, Hand Turned from Spalted Maple and Cherry Wood

Handmade Wooden Bowl with Lid, ALEXANDRA, Hand Turned from Spalted Maple and Cherry Wood

  • Handmade
  • Materials: spalted maple wood, cherry wood, high friction polish

Alexandra is a handmade lidded wooden bowl that I hand turned on my lathe. The bowl portion is made out of spalted maple that was sustainably sourced here in Bourbon County, KY while the lid is made from a re-purposed old cherry wood board. The heartwood of the cherry wood board is very dark while the sapwood is lighter creating a unique contrast on this lid.

Without the lid, the bowl is approximately 3-1/2" wide, 2-1/2" tall, and 2" deep. With the lid the measurements are 4" wide by 3" tall. The wood was finished with high friction polish to bring out the wood's natural color, grain, and tone. The finish is not food safe, though the bowl may be used to hold candy, nuts, etc.

Creekview Woodshop donates a portion of every sale to Green Forests Work, a nonprofit dedicated to re-establishing healthy and productive forests on formerly mined lands in Appalachia.

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!
