These bowls are both beautiful and useful. Chefs will love them for setting up their ingredients or using for individual sauce bowls. They make perfect gifts for the both home and professional chefs. Intricately grained and available in different styles and sizes, each bowl is different, as we allow the organic nature of the tree to shape each bowl with a natural live edge. Made from Teak root, our bowls are beautiful, durable, and coated with a food safe blend of organic beeswax and mineral oil. Tuckahoe Hardwoods was started by brothers George and Johnny Dent in 2004 out of an old farmhouse on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. After developing our business here in Maryland, we started some sustainable forestry projects in Indonesia, where we now own and operate our own shop, using only sustainably harvested wood for all of our products. Production is started there, and everything is finished here in Maryland.
