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.  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.  OK?

I may have misspoke saying this pecan wood bowl is tasty, but you can’t argue about the pecans in the photos tasting good.  This bowl exhibits some really nice natural coloration that is hard to beat.  While turning it I even added two lips for ease of handling.   That should not be a problem for anyone as the bowl only weighs about 1 ¼ pounds.  This bowl will look really good sitting on your table full of tasty fruits and nuts.  It has what is referred to as a small footprint.  The diameter is 9 ½” with a height of 2 ¾” and a depth of 2 ¼”.  The volume measured to 6 cups.  The wood received two coats of food grade walnut oil for sealing purposes.  Then the bowl was finished with a combination using walnut oil and shellac.  While the shellac was still damp I added a heavy coat of a walnut oil based wax to help create a nice even finish.  The mixture of these gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  13Aug19  BLP221  $40.00  Free standard shipping within Continental United States only.  All other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

There is no doubt that when describing the natural colors of this pecan wood bowl that the word superb comes to mind.  You have the natural browns intermixed with some black where some knots were trying to form.  Then you even have some red in there!  Mamma Nature was really good to this wood.  Some might consider it so good looking they might not wish to put anything in it.  Ah, go ahead!  After all the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  The sealing was done after some wet oil sanding to make sure the surfaces were nice and smooth.  Then the finishing was done with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  While that mixture was still quite damp and the bowl was spinning, it received a couple of coats of a walnut oil based wax.  All of this combined provides the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  The diameter of the bowl is 9 ¾” with a height of 3 ¼” and a depth of 2 ½”.  The volume measured at a ½ gallon and the weight of the bowl is a remarkable 1 ½ pounds.  Remarkable looking bowl and it is the 220th pecan bowl I have turned.  12Aug19  BLP220  $47.50  Free shipping within Continental United States.  All other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

Oh, my!  Does this bowl have wonderful natural coloring or not?  You just gotta say yes it does.  You take into consideration what natural colors Mamma Nature put in this wood, then add some great spalting and you have a true winner.  There is some neat looking knot holes trying to form on the lip that I left for a real nice rustic appeal.  That does not take away from the bowl’s measured capacity of 6 cups.  You may use this bowl with total confidence as the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  After a couple of coats of that the bowl was finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  This gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  There is a nice lip for those who like them for ease in handling.  The diameter is 10” with a height of 3 ½” and a depth of 2 ½”.  Great sized bowl with many uses for you to explore.  6Feb19  BLP211  $40.00  Free shipping within the Continental United States.

No need to add anything to this beautiful pecan bowl to make it stand out.  The natural color of this bowl with a tad bit of spalting added to it just simply makes it easy on the eyes, for sure.  There is a bit of a crack on the lip that I reinforced for good measure with clear glue and natural dust.  This little natural defect helps add to the rustic appearance of this bowl.  Not that pecan needs any help!  The diameter of the bowl is 10 ½” and the height is 3 ¼”.  The depth comes to 2 ½” and the volume measures ½ gallon to the brim.  That is a lot of veggies, smashed spuds, and other tasty items.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  A combination like this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  There is a nice lip for ease in handling.  Certainly a one of a kind piece.  24Jun19  BLP217  $48.50  Free Standard Shipping within Continental United States.

Once in a while I turn a bowl that says give me some turquoise!!!  Well, who am I not to listen to it?  The turquoise on the lip started out being in a really nice looking gap in the wood.  After all that was set, while sanding part of that broke off, so had to reshape it.  Then to make things look good I had to add more turquoise to that area.  All well and good and looks just fine.  There was another area under the lip that I added some to as well.  So for those who like some extra color added to the wood beside what Mamma Nature gave it, this bowl is perfect for you.  The diameter is 8 ¾”, the height is 2 ¼”, and the depth 1 ¾”.  The volume measured to 4 cups.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then the bowl was finished with two coats of a walnut oil and shellac mixture.  This gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  14Jun19  BLP216  $35.00  Free Standard Shipping Within Continental United States

I know you hear me say it a lot, but it is a true fact.  Not everybody needs a large bowl.  But pretty much everybody needs a smaller sized bowl.  This bowl fits the size that everybody needs.  With a diameter of 9” and a height of 1 ½” it has a needful size.  When you add to that the depth of 1” and a volume measured at 2 ½ cups, this bowl is quite useful.  Use it as a serving bowl or even as a display bowl for fruits and nuts and such.  The wood was sealed and finished with a micro-crystalline wax that is water and fingerprint resistant.  You can still feel the grain of the wood which to me is a plus.  14Oct18  BLP199  $28.00  and Free Shipping Within the Continental United States

This is without a doubt a fabulous looking medium sized pecan wood serving bowl.  And, for the photos I put pecans in it.  Why not?  You will find this bowl works well with any décor and it also holds 4 cups measured to the brim.  So that makes it a 4 cupper!  The diameter is 9 ¾” with a height of 2”.  The depth is right at 1 ¼”.  Fill this bowl up with salad or whatever you wish.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  Using a combination such as this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  Certainly one of a kind and not one to pass up on.  20Nov17  BLP173  $35.00 and $12.00 S&H
