Dishes & Coasters
Shown below are individual petrified wood sinks and bowls available for sale. Most bowls can be drilled out to be used as a sink. Drilling adds typically 1-2 weeks. Each piece is unique and displays the grain of the fossilized wood tree that originally grew over 30 million years ago. Bulk quantities are available for commercial jobs looking to purchase more sinks or bowls than are listed on this page. The sink holes are drilled with a 2.5″ recess to accept the drain flange and the hole is 1.625″ wide.
Petrified Wood Dishes
In the right conditions, wooden logs buried underground for millions of years slowly transform into petrified wood. Trapped underground where oxygen and bugs cannot accelerate the log’s decomposition, ground water slowly flows through and around these logs bringing the surrounding sediments with it. As the wood slowly decays, it is replaced with these sediments to create a three-dimensional fossil of the logs in shape and form down to their cell structure. When this fossilized wood is found, it can be cut into a variety of shapes to make stunning table tops, bowls, sinks, shelving, stand alone art pieces, and more. If you’re looking for a large volume cut to custom specifications, please do not hesitate to call and speak with our knowledgeable staff.
MAXIMIZING OUR PRECIOUS RESOURCES
Everything we do at Vintage Timberworks is focused on attention to detail and making the most with our limited resources while also minimizing our carbon footprint. As petrified wood is an extremely rare and precious resource, we strive to use as much of the small cutoff pieces that are generated in the production mill as possible. These small pieces are used as beautiful coasters, tiles, and mosaic works to be cherished for generations to come.
