Peterman's Boards & Bowls Inc.
Spencer Peterman is always on the lookout for fallen trees rotting in the woods. He gets excited about this kind of stuff. So do his customers. Hidden in those fallen trees — especially the ones covered by moss and dirt — is wood disfigured by the beginnings of decomposition. Turning that wood on a lathe produces strikingly unique bowls.
Peterman's bowls are kiln dried to 6% moisture content to stabilize and prevent future cracking and checking.
Hand wash bowls with mild soap and water. Dry off with a towel. Do not place in the diswasher or submerge in water. Our bowls have a food-safe finish to bring out the natural beauty of the wood. We recommend that you apply mineral oil once a month (or whenever needed) to maintain the natural beauty of the wood and to help prevent the wood from being stained.
