Thanks for being among the first to check out my newest collection of bowls.
This is a diverse collection of bowls...I tried to put a little of everything in here—different wood species, shapes, potential uses—and, in particular, I thought about mothers. Specifically, what a mother might like.
Here's a Sitka Alder bowl from the collection. Can you believe how incredible the grain is? Holy smokes, this is the kind of stuff that gets a guy like me excited about the beauty of trees!
You can see the rest of the collection by clicking here.
About 3/4 of my customers are women, so over the years I've learned all sorts of things bowls are used for that I never would have thought of myself.
Here's a list of some of the more obvious and unusual things my customers use bowls for:
If you're a guy like me reading this and not sure what your mother or wife might like, I can tell you that the one thing I never would have guessed is how much satisfaction my wife gets when displaying cookies, biscuits, and muffins in a shallow bowl or plate. I have to agree, it really spruces up a table.
Take a look around the website, and let me know if you like what you see or have any questions.
So here's the cute little cottonwood bowl I'm giving away.
There's been a big jump in my newsletter subscribers, so I thought just for fun...what if I announce the winner here...so only my most dedicated newsletter readers will have the chance to receive this bowl?
And that's what I did. I drew a random newsletter subscriber using Random.org to select one lucky winner.
If this is your email, then you are the winner!

IMPORTANT NOTE: If the above looks like your email, here's what you need to do to claim the bowl. Send me an email from my contact page within 24 hours.
If I don't hear from the owner of that email by 12:00 PM Eastern (8 AM Alaskan) on Thurs., May 5, I'll send out a new email, and we'll try again.
So even if you didn't win this bowl today, there's still a reasonable chance you might tomorrow. :)
I really appreciate you being here and I appreciate the opportunity to shine a light on the amazing woods of Alaska's Tongass National Forest.
Here's wishing you and yours a wonderful Mother's Day.
