Chuck Quibell - Wood Turnings

Elevated Nutmeg Bowl

Grand Edge Walnut Bowl


Quest for the Perfect Bowl

I craft both useful and decorative vessels from native and exotic woods which I find as “windfall” or storm-damaged trees in Sonoma County and the Sierra Nevada. I make a special effort to select orientations to highlight the wood grain to best advantage, paying particular attention to creating attractive forms which please the eye.

After sanding, I apply a wipe-on polyurethane followed by a paste wax.  Sometimes, however, the polished piece is left entirely UN-finished – to allow a direct tactile contact with the wood surface.  This elemental contact with a highly polished wood surface is something we too rarely experience but it is, I believe, one of the reasons we love the ‘feel’ of wood.
