When you have to pull out the microscope to count growth rings—you know it's an old piece of wood!

I rescued this tree from the ocean in front of my cabin in a storm about a year ago.  It was incredible slow growing, and nowhere is this more visible than in the massive branches that still had needles attached when I towed it back the beach below the shop.

These little bowls have been popular for jewelry.

I take my time with these little bowls because they really are special.  And please note: I'm discounting this bowl because it shows dark flecks on the outside.  I don't personally find that this distracts from the bowl, but I'd rather give the benefit of the doubt.

The bowl has a silky smooth finish, finished with multiple coats of food-grade tung and citrus oil.  I love how these little bowls feel in your hands.

This little bowl will serve equally well as a display bowl or for holding jewelry or small items like beach glass.

It's very dense, hard wood for a softwood species.  Because it is crafted from a single piece of wood, it will last for generations with basic care.

This bowl is a stunner
