The  story behind the looms

A Passion for Detail

 Born from the passion for handmade wooden unique items. (Mostly bowls)  I came across looms from my daughter in law,  She had asked me to make her a loom with a comb for her to create her beautiful items from yarn acquired from around the world.  That was the start of my creating the looms from different woods all from the Hudson Valley and North Country.

About my bowls, charcuterie boards and looms

Hudson Valley Wooden Bowls only uses naturally downed hardwood trees for the woods used in crafting. I travel the Hudson Valley and the Northern Country near the Canadian border looking for cedars, oaks, maples, walnuts, ashes and others--taking only select cuts.  There is a lot of hands-on work that goes into my products.  The multi-step process used in the creation of each bowl and every piece is assured to meet my standards.  Each bowl and everything I create is comprised of various species of trees, fit and honed to perfection to give a dimensional quality to each one. The bowls and charcuterie boards are food friendly.
