A bit about our world

Our Process

Healthy forestry only

Wood Sourcing

All of the stock we use (Cherry, Black Walnut, Ash, White Oak 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. Most of which comes from our own acreage in Scandia Pennsylvania just up the road from our workshop. We also have many great connections with local foresters, landowners and logging companies which allows us to purchase/source only from people/businesses that practice healthy forestry.

Our Process

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.
