Feb. 25 the Putnam Rotary Club learned about the creative --- and sometimes dangerous process --- of creating wooden bowls from Dan Merlo of Eastford. He described the serendipity of finding amazing logs, trunks and burls, the drying process, turning on a lathe (and it had better be completely balanced!), his discovery of using resins to fill gaps beautifully and more.

Rescued Wood is a business inspired by my love of the natural beauty of wood.
Turning and creating bowls, cutting boards, tables, rolling pins, etc.
