Hi, this is Ralph. Thanks for dropping in. I enjoy creating wood art and take great joy in the reactions people have to my creations.

I create many different things on the lathe, including bowls, platters, plates, and boxes. I like to try different designs as well as different methods. You will likely never see two items that look the same.

If you purchase a utilitarian item, it is finished with a food safe finish. It can be used for serving fruit, pasta, salad, popcorn, and other great snacks. It should be washed in warm soapy water and left to air dry. Do not microwave or put bowls in the dishwasher. Bowls should be stored out of direct sunlight so as to not alter the bowl's color. If the finish begins to wear, it should be reconditioned with Clapham's Beeswax Salad Bowl Finish. If Clapham's is not available you can use walnut oil or tung oil. If this item is properly cared for, it will be a useful happy bowl, and it can last for generations.

Decorative items should also be stored out of direct sunlight, but in a prominent area of your home or office. This will make your piece feel loved and should also make you smile. The surface can be reconditioned with clear paste wax if needed. Simply apply the wax, wait for it to dry, and buff until polished with a clean cloth.

If you are happy with your item please leave positive feedback in the comment section. If for some reason you are unhappy with your item please contact me.

Thank you,
Ralph Vawter
