Original Myrtlewood bowl from Bayview Myrtlewood Shop North Bend Oregon c1950. This bowl hand made by an artisan on a lathe from a single piece of Myrtlewood. Measures 12 x 4 inches. Original label on base. The myrtlewood industry originated in the late 1800's along the Southern Oregon Coast. As one takes a closer look at myrtlewood craftsmanship, the oldest factory emerges as a story of history and success. The Myrtlewood Factory, located five miles north of North Bend, Oregon, at the entrance to the Dunes National Recreation Area, is the oldest in the world. In 1869, the golden spike symbolically marking completion of the nation's first transcontinental railroad was driven into a tie of highly polished myrtlewood. Later, the wood brought some rare beauty for the Great Depression years. It soon became a tourist attraction, and many small shops opened up, presenting the product to travelers along the Oregon Coast. Today you will find 15-18 retail stores, some with small factories in the back, turning bowls and trays for their own resale.
