Flared Cedar Elm Goodie Bowl

Is this a goodie bowl or what?  Makes no difference whether you use it for nuts and candies, it will work well.  You might even use it as a catch all bowl for keys and change and the like.  No matter the usage you pick, this bowl turned from beautiful cedar elm will look real good.  For those who have never heard of Cedar Elm, it is also known as Texas Elm and Texas Cedar Elm.  It is referred to as cedar elm because it commonly grows around cedar trees.  And feel confidence putting edibles in it as the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax that includes carnauba.  The bowl is 7 ½” long, 4 ½” wide, 3” at highest point, 1 ¾” at the lowest.  The depth is 1” measured to the lowest side level and the volume measures 1 cup.  Now seeing the volume was measured to the lowest side level, that does not mean you can’t just pile goodies in until they fall out!!!  Enjoy this beautiful and unique shaped bowl.  25May19  BLCE9  $28.00  and Free Standard shipping within Continental United States.

Sometimes when a person sees a 3 corner bowl like this one they are amazed with it.  It captivates their mind on how it was made.  Not being one to give away my secrets I just tell them it takes a bit of time to do one, and it does.  This particular fine looking bowl was turned from pecan which is gorgeous in its own right.  So fill it with your favorite candies, nuts, small fruits and other goodies.  Some might use it as a potpourri bowl as well.  Many, many uses.  The bowl averages 6” in total diameter, 4” in height and has a measured depth of 2” up to the level of where water will run out of it.  The volume is 1 cup.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  Enjoy!

When people see this bowl sitting on your table, they are gonna ask about it.  You know it.  I know it.  After all the natural coloring of hackberry with the magnificent way the spalting runs in it makes it really stand out from others.  Now this bowl may be used as a serving bowl for salads, veggies as well as smashed spuds.  You might also use it as a display bowl for fruits and nuts and pretty much anything else you want to put in it.  Use the bowl with confidence as the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  Then the bowl was finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture with a bit of walnut oil based wax added while being rubbed in.  After that the bowl was buffed to a nice luster.  You will feel on the outside of the bowl in some areas where the wood is slightly burred.  It was sanded as far as I thought was a good idea without making the sides too thin.  The bowl is 12 ¼” in diameter at the four corners and 9 ¼” squared.  The height at the corners is 5” and 4” and the low side.  The volume measures at ¾ gallon.  That is a lot of salad or whatever tasty stuff you put in the bowl.  14Jan19  BLHB70   $47.50 and free shipping within Continental United States
