We love Spencer Peterman Wood bowls and Serving Boards! Spencer is always on the lookout for fallen trees in the woods of Western Massachusettes, especially the ones covered by moss and dirt. This is wood is disfigured by the beginnings of decomposition... usually maple, cherry or black walnut and turning that wood on a lathe at the mill produces the most unique and beautiful pieces. Each piece then moves on to the shop where all the fine sanding and hand finishing work is done. And of course all Spencer Peterman pieces are food safe.
