Pecan Turnings

OK, folks!  What will be on this page are serving bowls, display bowls, and serving and display dishes from that fabulous wood called pecan.  Which by the way just happens to be the Texas State Tree.  Another variety of pecan bowls may be seen on the Pedestal Bowl page.  So similar to hickory, they are often confused.  The natural beauty of this wood is really something to behold, so take a look and don't be surprised if you are just slightly awed.

Sometimes I am so amazed at how a bowl looks once it is sanded, sealed and finished.  Usually I don’t really see what the bowl is gonna look like until I have given it a good coat of food grade walnut oil for sealing the wood.  This bowl is really good looking in my opinion.  Lots of natural color and grain pattern to see here.  You also have some beautiful spalting lines as well.  Now and then you will see some natural defects in the wood that I leave in place to give the bowl a more natural and rustic look.  The bowl is 11 ¼” in diameter and 3” high.  The depth is 2 ¼” with the volume measuring at ¾ gallon.  The wood as I mentioned before was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then buffed with tripoli wood buffing compound.  The finishing was done with two coats of straight shellac rubbed in while spinning and then buffed at high speed.  Using these materials and methods gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  29Jan21  BLP274  $57.50  Qualifies for free shipping within the United States.

Without a doubt, pecan wood is quite beautiful.  This dish displays that very well.  Add some really nice spalting lines and you have to admit it is lovely to look at.  Some might find it difficult to put anything in it due to it’s natural beauty.  Aw, go ahead.  After all the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  Then it was buffed with tripoli wood buffing compound.  Then the finishing on it was done with shellac and a bit of walnut oil wax.  These materials and methods give the dish a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  The diameter is 9 ¾” with a height of 1 ¾”.  The depth is 1” and the volume if you need it is 4 cups.  One of the most attractive features of this dish is the knot hole on the outside that grew at an angle.  Of course this dish could be used easily as a shallow bowl if you wish.  23Nov20  SDP68  $45.00 Qualifies for free shipping within the United States.

Simply put, this bowl will work absolutely great as a candy or nut bowl, or even as a catch all bowl.  Some folks might put some nice smelling potpouri in it as well.  Now myself would have it sitting on my desk full of something really tasty so that whenever someone tried to snitch one or two of them I could whack their knuckles!  The natural colors of pecan wood along with some spalting that Mamma Nature added to it really make this a classy piece.  There are some of the usual imperfections in the wood that I left alone.  The bowl is 9 ½” long and 6 ¼” wide.  The height is 2 ¾” and the depth comes to 2 ¼”.  The volume measured at 2 ½ cups.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil that was allowed to soak in for 24 hours.  The finishing was done with walnut oil based wax which was handrubbed onto the wood and allowed to sit for 24 hours before being wiped down and then buffed.  This gives the bowl a more natural lustre to the wood.  You can also still feel some of the grain in the wood this way.  14Jul20  BLP257  $37.50  Qualifies for free shipping in the United States.

Sometimes I have to admit that pecan wood can even amaze me with the colors it gives forth.  This bowl is certainly no exception to that.  The dark and medium brown colors mixed with some nice spalting really make this bowl stand out.  You will also find a handy lip for ease in handling. Though it certainly holds 4 cups of liquid I think this bowl is better suited as a display bowl for fruits and nuts than being used as a serving bowl.  But, hold on!  You can do that if you want.  After all the bowl was sealed with several coats of food grade walnut oil which basically saturated the wood overnight.  The finishing was done with shellac and with some walnut oil based wax for ease in spreading and penetration.  Using this mixture of ingredients gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  Without a doubt it is one of a kind.  3May20  BLP250  $40.00 and $6.00 S&H  Shipping price listed is for standard shipping with the Continental United States only.  Other areas contact with zip code for shipping costs.

I think it would be hard to argue about how good looking pecan wood is.  And when you look at this multi-sided bowl with its natural colors and some spalting added in, you just can’t argue with it.  This rustic gem has all kinds of things going for it.  You will find some great natural defects in the wood that I made no effort to remedy.  Some defects are just simply too good looking to eliminate.  You might call this bowl 6 sided, but with the way the rest of the edge turned out I decided just to call it mult-isided.  The way I turned the base almost makes it a pedestal bowl, but not quite.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  Using a combination such as this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  22Oct19  BLP231  $42.50  Free standard shipping within Continental United States only.  Other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

Now here is something that you don’t see everyday!  A pecan wood bowl with flared wings like this will look good on any table.  Fill it with your favorite treats whether it is fruits and nuts or candies.  Though not meant to be a serving bowl, it does hold 4 cups of liquid before it ran over the low side.  The minor cracks that you see were filled with clear glue and natural dust to keep things looking as close as possible to the way Mamma Nature wants them.  The length is 11 ½” with a width of 7 ¾”.  The high end is 4 ¼” and the low side is 3”.  The depth is 2”.  This bowl was a bit hazardous to turn with the flared wings.  But, it certainly was fun.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  Using a combination like this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  10Oct19  BLP228   $50.00  Free standard shipping within Continental United States only.  Other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

Everybody needs a bowl like this.  Just think how nice it will look sitting on your desk, dining table, or even sideboard.  Fill it up with your favorite nuts or candies.  You might even use it as a catch all bowl for keys and change.  Some folks even use them for putting those larger diameter candles in.  Makes no difference what you use it for, this little bowl is gonna look good doing it.  I did not measure the volume as it’s really not a serving bowl.  It is 7 ½” long and 4 ½” wide.  The highest point is 1 ¾” and the lowest is ¾”.  Sealed the wood with food grade walnut oil and then finished it with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  This combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  14Jul19  BLP218  $27.50  Free Standard Shipping Within Continental United States.

Using the word elegant may not give this bowl it’s due.  After all it has lots of beautiful color naturally.  You will find some cracks that were sealed up with clear glue and coffee grounds.  Nothing like keeping things as natural as possible.  Pecan has some great looking grain patterns as well.  As far as capacity for this bowl it measured at one half gallon.  The outer diameter is 9 ¼” and the inner diameter is 7 ¼”.  The height comes to 3 ½” and the depth is just under 3”.  You have a nice lip for ease in handling the bowl.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a mixture of walnut oil and shellac.  This gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  You will find a couple of defects in the wood on the inside that just would not sand totally smooth.  Enjoy this fantastic bowl!  28May19  BLP214  $42.50  Free standard shipping within Continental United States.
