This hand-turned cherry salad bowl is as functional as it is attractive.
Rodger Jacobs has been turning wood for a long time right here in North Carolina.
"I believe in using the wood that I find locally. It is part of the fun to tramp through the woods looking for distressed, burled, spalted, or even plain trees. It is hard work getting the logs and pieces out of the woods. Log chains, peaveys, chain saws are the standard tools of the trade. It’s worth it though. Every time I open a piece it’s like Christmas, and every piece is different. Shape and balance are the keys. In a hundred years, all that will be left is the shape: that the important part. I feel I have reached my goal when the work breathes by itself, when it radiates that certain aura that cannot be improved upon."
