Thomas Saunders, my good buddy and ace wood turner!

These are pieces I have in my stash from my friend Thomas Saunders, a fabulous wood turner (among other things)! Every time I use a piece of his for my food and sell it, I die a little bit inside because I am so attached to them! But my customers are more than willing to pay extra for having his work included, because it truly elevates the food to a whole new level. His craftsmanship is flawless. I was thrilled that he made me some Tudor trenchers to "play with", and a standing ashtray made of marble and wood, which I will, most likely, NEVER part with (not shown). You can see more of his work here:



  1. So that's were they all went to!

    Thaks Kiva .... You're making me blush again.


  2. Well Tom, you know that I treasure my standing ashtray, too! I am going to fill it and snap pics, very soon :-D!

  3. That, I would really enjoy seeing when it is done.
