Underground Railroad Bowl

Wood with a History

This Underground Railroad Bowl is wood from a storm damaged Mulberry tree on the Underground Railroad Trail in Nyack NY. Just think about the history this tree borne witness to. This historic wood makes this Underground Railroad Bowl a one of a kind with tons of character. It rare to find wood with such gorgeous patterns of beautiful grain and colorful age ring markings. This bowl is perfect as a centerpiece for your table. The size is 8 inch diameter by 2 1/2 high. My signature is on the base with a notation about the wood ‘s provenance.

Picture this gorgeous food safe bowl filled with candy on your kitchen table. If you are constantly misplacing your keys and cell phone this bowl is perfect as a cell phone holder or jewelry keeper. Just drop the items into the bowl when you get home and your life will be simplified.

Care Instructions for your wood art.

  1. Keep out of direct sunlight and minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels

  2. Do not wash with water and if necessary use only a damp cloth

  3. Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster. I recommend beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.


I design and produce all items on this website in my studio in Montvale, NJ USA. My primary machine is the wood lathe to create the form. Once the shape is prepared the piece goes to the workbench for finishing.
