Holland Bowl Mill
Located on the north side of Holland, Holland Bowl Mill is the largest manufacturer of wooden bowls in the United States, selling products all over the world. The mill has been in operation since 1906, and produces 800 to 1,000 wooden bowls every week.
Aside from producing solid wooden bowls, the mill crafts Michigan-shaped bowls, four-corner bowls, charcuterie boards, utensils, candle holders, grilling planks and now, a new furniture line. The Rowan Collection — available in walnut and cherry — includes an end table, console table, entryway bench and coffee table.
Stop by the renovated retail store and showroom and take a free guided tour — it gives you an inside look at the mill, and allows you to watch artisans transform a log into beautiful wooden bowls.
Howard Miller clocks are a staple in many homes across the nation, but did you know they’ve been made locally in Zeeland since 1926? The company’s first products were a line of chiming mantel and wall clocks. While the first clocks were made in traditional American designs, after 1933 Howard Miller introduced original clocks, which won awards for their designs.
Howard Miller clocks are known for being steeped in quality, innovation, workmanship and reliability — these clocks truly stand the test of time. Find them at Teerman’s and Klingman’s Furniture & Design in Holland.
