Bill’s Natural wood products

All of the wood products have food-grade lacquer put on them so that they are not just pretty but also useful. The fully-cured oils would also be considered food safe. Bill’s niche is leaving the natural edge on a wood product. A live edge bowl, also sometimes called a natural edge bowl, is a bowl that uses the natural contour of the bark side of a log as the top rim edge of the bowl.  If you see a wood product that you like, call Bill at (402) 613-0996.

Bill Dykema has turned wood on a lathe for the last seven years. The origin of turning dates to around 1300 B.C. One person would turn the wood work piece with a rope while the other used a sharp tool to cut shapes in the wood. During the serval year of practice he has worked with elm, red elm, walnut, oak, catalpa, maple, pine, boxelder, and fruitwoods.  His wood sources are lumberjacks, tree trimmers, and what he finds.
