Unique wooden pieces made to last, made to be used and loved for generations
From Our Customers
I am a teacher, originally from North Dakota—-I’mvery cognizant of what I spend my money on. Scott’s bowls, trays, and platters are always front and center in my home! I have a variety of woodtypes and they are all absolutely gorgeous—especially after he works his magic! Every single piece I’ve ordered is fabulous. Scott’sdedication to his craft has developed over many years, and perfection isn’t a word I use lightly—-but, I definitely believe each piece I receive is just that…perfection! His works of art will last a lifetime and are worthevery penny. When my pieces aren’t being used to serve foods, they are always beautiful pieces of decor that are never hidden away!
“The time and care that he takes in practicing his craft is mesmerizing. I feel privileged that my family get to use and care for the beautiful objects Scott makes.”
I’ll never forget the day I opened the box that held my beautiful bowl. When we admired its incredible pattern, I almost wanted to display it without ever
using it to hold food. My feeling changed when I needed to serve salad for a large group a few weeks later. Our hive bowl was perfect in every way. Now, it’s our go-to bowl for casual family dinners and large gatherings. I love that it was handcrafted with care from a log in our home state, but that’s not even the best part. Our bowl was built to hold the recipes and hear the stories of family dinners for generations to come. And that’s something truly special.
I don’t buy wood home decor pieces from Target anymore. My recommendation to anyone considering investing in pieces from Scott is, buy it you won’t regret it. We have four or five main pieces (just got the cute Ad Tray for charcuteries). Last year I sent two big bowls to close family friends, they love them too. Scott’s craftsmanship is perfect and his pieces are timeless. Each arrives beautifully boxed with care and cleaning instructions. Order early, you’ll adore them.💕
All of the stock we use (mainly Cherry and Soft maple) to make our work travels less than 30 miles to get to us from the large hardwood forests here in NW Pennsylvania. We have built many great connections with local foresters, landowners and logging companies which allows us to purchase/source only from people/businesses that practice healthy forestry. Some woods are rare for us to get, but we love working with them. For instance, white oak is sourced from local landowners that have a tree blow down in a storm- we love that we can make use of trees that would otherwise go to waste.
Working with Green wood
The great majority are made in a process known as twice turned bowls where you take green (unseasoned still wet wood) and turn a very thick bowl, then let it air dry for several months. Once it’s completely dried, that thick bowl is then turned a second time to make it completely round and uniform, then sanded into the finished product. We have a unique working process where we take green (unseasoned still wet wood) and turn it to its final thickness. From there we sand it, tuck it away to dry, then we add the final touches including oiling the bowls for immediate use in the home.
