Woodson Turning

Woodson Turning Hand Crafted Wooden Bowls and Platters I have always been involved with wood. Until I recently retired, my interests were on the hobby level and collecting.

I moved my grandfather’s wood collection eight times over 30 years. Some pieces date back to 1954. Another piece is a leftover oak threshold from his house built in 1908. From him I learned that wood always has a history and tells a story. How old was the tree? Did it shade and cool a house during those hot dusty summer months? Did a child swing from one of the branches? (I know all too well the s

Valley Oak bowl, 5" diameter, 2" high, No. 6554

Need a unique, handcrafted gift for someone special? This is a perfect bowl for nuts or candy. Why not add a piece of the CA Central Valley to your life?

Valley Oak bowl. Valley Oak is very difficult to process and bring to finished product due to its tendency to crack and warp. I generally lose

Valley Oak bowl, 13" diameter, 5" high, No. 6711

Every once in awhile, you come across just a remarkable piece. This is one of those. The grain pattern is just endless. I'm limited here to five photographs; I'd like space for 10 more at least. I would be happy to send those if you are interested. This family heirloom can be used for salad for many guests, centerpiece decoration, fruit, let your mind wander.

10 inch Sycamore plate. This piece has a light, but notable grain. Sycamore trees are primarily thought of as massive shade trees, often their trunks are three feet in diameter and can live for 500-600 years. My childhood days were often spent on a swing from a Sycamore at my grandparents' house.

White Oak bowl, 8 1/2" diameter, 3" high, no. 6740

I gathered this wood from my wife's parents home in Oregon. We love visiting Shady Cove and fishing on the Rogue River. Bringing home a nice piece of wood is a nice trade off for our lack of luck in the fishing department!

This is a White Oak bowl. The wood comes from Shady Cove which is located on the Rogue River in Oregon, beautiful place. This would be very

Blue Oak is found in the foothills above California's San Joaquin Valley. Because of the often harsh conditions and high mineral content of the soil, it is often highly figured with colors varying from blue to black to reds. When I use the words, "highly figured" I am referring to the exciting and beautiful grain in the wood.

This huge bowl is probably not the salad bowl for your table unless you have a very large family. More of a decorator piece.

I'm into the long, tedious process of sanding. Finished product is still a few days off. The walnut is absolutely beautiful!

I'm starting to do the finish work on a huge solid piece of Black Walnut. This will be my biggest bowl to date!

Thank you all for the kind comments. There is nothing finer than a day spent in the wood shop for me. I love everything about the process of turning -- from collecting logs along the river to turning the finished product on my lathe. And when my bowls find their way into homes and become the "go-to" bowl for fruit, chips, nuts, or salad the circle is complete. Thanks again for the kind words. -Doug
