bowls & hardwood products made on Martha's Vineyard
Share the Island with the ones you love
Martha's Vineyard is an island of limited resources and space. Many of the trees on this island have played a pivotal role in its unique history. I take pride in knowing the island location, history and story of every piece of wood that comes out of my shop. In the end I'm creating a new life, and a new history for our island trees. I think everyone should be able to share in that experience.
Made Entirely on Chappaquiddick
While the trees I use are from all corners of the island, I mill and produce everything entirely on Chappaquiddick, which is a small island off of Edgartown, connected only by a thin barrier beach.
My milling, drying and finishing process is intentionally slow.
I start with a whole tree as my raw material. Over the course of a few months, that tree is milled, cored, dried, sanded and finished to produce a truly local wood product.
All of my products are finished with food/allergy safe walnut oil and are intended to be used and shared daily.
How the bowls are made
Each and every bowl has its own story that starts with a tree on Martha's Vineyard, evolves in my shop on Chappaquiddick and continues on your table with family and friends.
