Our beautiful hand-carved burl & dough bowls are created by Tom Sternal, from various species of wood found here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Mineral oil is used to seal the food safe bowls. To care for the bowls, wash with soap & water, & dry thoroughly. Mineral oil can be used to refresh them as needed. The decorative bowls are either finished with mineral oil or an oil based finish.

Also finished with mineral oil, Tom Sternal & his select group of artisans create these one of a kind kitchen utensils, bread boards, trivets & serving trays from local poplar, cherry, black walnut, locust, oak, & maple trees. These may be washed with soap & water & dried thoroughly, refreshing with mineral oil as needed. Click here to shop our Culinary Supplies Collection.
Fallen or discarded trees are used by Tom to create beautiful & functional furniture pieces. His method of working is based on a preference for using solid materials, few elements, & minimal manipulations, preserving the naturalness of each piece. Click here to shop our Furniture Collection.
Garden & Outdoor
Our sturdy swings are constructed by Paul Bloedel, here at fall creek woods. The butterflies, birds, & small animals love to find Paul’s hand-carved natural stone vessels filled with water & tucked in a garden. Or float a fresh flower in a stone vessel & place it near your front door to welcome your guests. They also make great sculptural pieces indoors. Click here to shop our Garden & Outdoor Collection.
Discarded logs & reclaimed wood are restored & shaped into unique pieces that would add natural beauty to your home. Each of our sculptures are created one at a time, with no two alike. The fir trees are sculpted by Tom Sternal from cedar, oak, hickory, black walnut, maple, poplar, & other wood species of the Blue Ridge Mountains. From 4 inches to 3 feet, with bark or without, each tree has it’s own character. Grouped in a forest, or standing alone, the trees will add interest to any home.
