Pedestal Bowls

Pedestal bowls are very attractive and look good anywhere.  One of the other nice thing about them is I really enjoy turning them from all kinds of wood.  The line will be expanding as time allows so please take time to check this page often.

I suppose you could say that this pecan wood is repurposed.  This was planned originally to be a large cake/pastry stand.  The edge in areas just was not going to work as a full stand.  So, being determined not to waste the wood I decided to see what would come from it and here you are!  With the natural colors of pecan and the knotholes, I think this is a winner.  And, so will you.  Yes, the wood has it’s flaws, but the beauty of it makes up for it.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  This combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.   The diameter is 8” with a base diameter of 4 ¼”.  The height measures at 4 ¼” and the depth is 1 ½”.  Though not meant to hold liquid the volume does come to measuring 1 ½ cups.  Now I am not gonna tell you that you have to put M&M’s in this bowl, but you have to admit they do look good in it.  17Jan18  BLP178  $30.00 $12.00 S&H

Can anybody argue with the fact that this bowl will look good on any table filled with bananas, apples and any other fruit as well as nuts?  I don’t think so.  Because this bowl is from elm, there is some pitting in the wood that adds a rustic appeal to it.  I filled some areas with clear glue and coffee grounds to keep everything as natural as possible.  It does hold liquids and in fact it held ¾ gallon of water for measuring.  That ain’t bad at all.  I prefer my serving bowls to have less natural imperfections in the wood and that’s why I am designating it as a display bowl.  The diameter is 12 ½” with a height of 4” and a depth of 2 ½”.   The base diameter is 6 ¼” and the weight of the bowl is just under 2 pounds.   The wood was sealed with several coats of walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  This combo gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  15Jan18  BLE62

Pedestal bowls are an attractive addition to any décor.  They are also fun to turn.  This natural cottonwood bowl has lots to offer.  Not only does it have beautiful natural colors, it holds 5 cups in volume.  That is a pretty good amount of salad, smashed spuds, fruit and nuts or whatever else you may decide to put in it.  The diameter is 10” with a height of 2 ¾” and a depth of 1 ½”.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  The finishing was done using a wax that is walnut oil based.  A combination such as this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  BLCW91  5Jan17  $32.50 and $12.00 S&H

The natural beauty of cottonwood has a certain subtleness to me.  The creamy light wood with the gray mixed in makes it stand out really nice.  One of the other benefits to cottonwood is it is very lightweight for those who might have arthritis issues and such.  After being kiln dried it is also durable.  This particular pedestal bowl holds 5 cups measured to the brim.  The diameter is 9 ¾” with a height of 3” and depth of 1 ¾”.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a couple of coats of walnut oil based wax.  This mix gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  Simple care instructions are included with purchase.  5Jan17  BLCW90  $32.50 and $12.00 S&H

When you hold this bowl in your hands, I truly believe you will not only find it being wonderful but absolutely gorgeous.  The natural coloration of this wood makes this a bowl that will look good sitting as the centerpiece of anybody’s table.  Use it with confidence as the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a mixture of walnut oil and shellac heavy on the shellac for more sheen.  This combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  So fill it with veggies or even mashed spuds if you wish.  Or decorate your table using it as a display bowl full of fruits and nuts.  There are several lines burned into the base are of the bowl for decorative purposes.  The diameter is 10 ½” with a height of 4” and a depth of 2 ¾”.  Take all of those measurements and you end up with a volume measuring ½ gallon.  That is a fair amount, folks!  22Aug17  BLP159  $45.00 and $14.00 S&H

Small Bodark Pedestal Bowl

530;450;21e5339965b3c0eccd7588f593488f882d708352530;450;d9865d74ece5989ebea62b91ef02d111e39851cd530;450;35303655034ef3193b2f97e33d298ebc519d20ad530;450;32f6d4eeaebcbdedabe36f4c9da52f5f6ab465e6530;450;f9cf4d21ceca307d5e9a6841ccb2624470fae1ee

When you see a bowl turned from bodark like this one of the words that come to mind is elegant.  And, it will hold 3 cups of anything dry.  Not meant to hold liquids as the knothole in the bottom does leak a little bit.  Not a lot, just a little.  Don’t worry about those stress cracks you see.  That is quite typical of this wood which is also known as osage orange.  All cracks were sealed and filled with clear glue and bodark dust.  Great as a display bowl for nuts, fruits and candies.  Some folks might even use it for potpourri.  The bowl is 6 ¾” in diameter, 3” high and has a depth of 2”.  There are a couple of lines burned into the pedestal area for decoration.  3Apr17  BLBA92  $30.00 and $10.00 S&H
