This lidded vessel is the third in a series made with wood salvaged from a 100-year-old barn near Frederick, MD.
The photos above show different views of the piece. About each quarter turn reveals a change in grain pattern and sometimes figuring and medullary rays.
While cutting and shaping exposed the interior beauty of the wood, the rim retains the weathered character of the barn beam from which the piece was made.
Each vessel in this series in finished in Dr. Woodshop’s Walnut Oil, as food safe a finish as we know of. The vessels have many uses in kitchen, dining room or as a stand-alone display.
