Bowl turning is an American tradition that began over 150 years ago when wooden bowls were an important part of everyday life. Each wood bowl was skillfully turned and greatly valued. Today, turning wood bowls is a vanishing art form, with Holland Bowl Mill being one of only a few commercial producers left in the United States.The Holland Bowl Mill was started in 1926 by Chester VanTongeren and to this day is still owned and operated by Chester's relatives. The current president and owner of Holland Bowl Mill is Dave Gier, Chester's grandson. The bowl mill is located in Holland Michigan, near the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan.The Holland Bowl Mill is now the best and largest solid wood bowl production facility in the world, making beautiful solid hardwood bowls of the highest quality, the same way they were made over 150 years ago.It can take close to one hundred years for a hardwood tree to produce the grains that make each Holland Bowl Mill wooden bowl so beautiful. A variety of colors and grain patterns give testimony to the uniqueness of each bowl, no two are exactly alike. We take great pride in bringing this beauty to our all of our customers. Functional and decorative, our wood bowls are keepsakes that will last for generations.
