These stunning bowls using local kiln dried scrap wood left over from cabinet and other carpentry jobs, plus other “waste” wood deemed unsuitable by carpenters. Delightfully, that which is considered unsuitable by carpenters becomes spectacular in the skillful hands of an artisan. Gluing together triangular pieces in a process he designed, he then puts them on a lathe. There, a hunk of glued scraps becomes a work of art. Additionally, he has made most of his own tools, fine-tuning them to uses specific to his process.Many of Arlo’s bowls feature spalted* wood, a “rotting” process that naturally occurs in many humid areas when the tree is growing. Resulting in absolutely gorgeous patterns, the ‘rotting’ process is halted when the wood is kiln dried. The patterns are highlighted in Arlo’s designs.
