Vermont is known for its lush forests and beautiful natural areas– so its no surprise that decorating your home with Vermont Style involves taking beautiful, natural elements and making them centerpieces of your home design. This cherry wood bowl by JK Adams does just that, serving as the perfect tabletop decor as well as a functional dining room piece. Wooden bowls are super versatile, and can be used to highlight the natural beauty of wood in practically any room in the home.
We use these bowls as part of our Vermont Style decor at Stonehurst because they accent our fine wood furniture beautifully and effortlessly!

Fellow woodworkers at JK Adams Kitchen Store are now represented at Stonehurst, Vermont’s newest fine furniture and art gallery. We’re excited to be able to offer customers (in both our showroom and online store) a great selection of handmade wooden tableware, kitchenware and wine and stemware storage.
If you’re not already acquainted with the JK Adams brand, allow me to highlight a few things about their history and quality. JK Adams has been “bringing generations of New England Yankee craftsmanship to the gourmet housewares industry for over 65 years.” They handcraft innovative and functional hardwood cutting boards, bowls, utensils, wine racks and knife racks in Dorset, Vermont– just a short ways from Stonehurst.
In addition to wooden housewares, JK Adams also offers Vermont slate products including Lazy Susans and drink coasters (with padded bases to prevent tabletop scratches).
One of the reasons we wanted to represent JK Adams is their commitment to the environment and the Vermont community. Sustainability is part of the foundation the company. Every J.K. Adams product is made in America from sustainably-grown and harvested North American wood. The J. K. Adams facility is fueled with wood scraps. Sawdust is shipped to area farmers for use on their fields and as beds for their animals. The company employs many generations of local families and they are one of the largest employers in the area.
Please join us in warmly welcoming J. K. Adams to Vermont Woods Studios and Stonehurst. We know you will love their products.
ps– they make wonderful gifts for the holidays, weddings, anniversaries and birthdays!
