Handmade out of repurposed wood, all our upcycled wooden salad bowls are food safe. Hand wash only. Our Gray Driftwood Round Bowls are made from our upcycled Oak logs. Each piece is carved out on our lathe, ebonized, and rubbed with a food grade milk paint finish and seale(no conditioner needed). These bowls are a perfect fit in a seaside home or a subtle modern statement in an urban apartment. Of course, as always, they are great for salads!

Spencer has been turning bowls for about 15 years. He actually started out as a basket weaver making Nantucket baskets. While doing craft shows he became interested in the idea of learning how to turn bowls. He visited a few of the wood bowl companies in Vermont and started practicing on a lathe. Eventually he designed and made his own lathe that would produce a more natural and rugged shaped bowl. Spencer saw that there were a lot of trees locally that were being chipped up or cut for firewood. He thought he could turn all these discarded logs into something much more useful, and beautiful as well. Today almost all the wood he gets are from locally fallen trees in Western Massachusetts, such as maple, cherry or black walnut.
