Handmade in Oregon
Myrtlewood Bowls, Baskets & Trugs
For 40 years, Don Barber built wooden boats in the small fishing and timber town of Coos Bay, Oregon. When he left boatbuilding, he started a family business handcrafting old fashioned baskets out of Oregon myrtlewood, a beautiful hardwood from broadleaf evergreen Myrtle trees that grow abundantly along the Pacific Northwest Coast. The heirloom quality baskets are made one at a time, by hand, fastened with cut copper nails, fitted with copper handles, and finished with clear food-grade mineral oil that preserves the wood and brings out the stunning grain. Made in Oregon.
