The wood from this bowl was reclaimed from a river bottom in North Carolina and was carbon dated to be at least 140 years old. It has been aged then turned by artist Bob Stancil into a durable and functional piece. The dense resin-rich wood that made the Longleaf so desirable is still apparent after all that time. Walk within a few feet of this bowl and you catch subtle and clean pine aroma.
Turned by hand and finished using food safe butcher block oil. Don’t soak it in water or leave it in intense sunlight and it will easily last another 140 years.
