This material is reclaimed Douglas Fir beams collected on various scrapping and salvage expeditions around Trenton, NJ. These beams are over 100 years old, heartwood four inches thick and at least fourteen inches wide. They stink when you turn them, the old oils, solvents, and turpentine scent is quite prominent!
#3 is a simple 10” round bowl, basic shape with a single rim bead. No torching, just finished natural.
We hope there will be many more of these to come – but we’ll have to see if they catch on and sell!
