At HawkBluff, the process of making one of our wood bowls can take up to a year from start to finish. It begins by choosing the right piece of wood - we only use locally sourced wood from Maryland for all the bowls in our workshop.

Once we choose the right piece of wood for the project, whether it's a wood bowl, dish, platter, or art piece, we turn the green wood (unseasoned or wet) until it is approximately the right size. We typically leave about 10% thickness on this rough-turned bowls and coat it with wax. The bowl is then stored for 6 months to a year so it can dry completely, slowly and naturally. Once it is dry, we turn the bowl again to its final finished size.
