When you look at the natural colors, the spalting, and grain patterns this bowl qualifies for a nice wow.  This bowl is perfect for nuts or candies.  You might even have it sitting on a sideboard for keys and change.  Others might have it sitting on their desk at work with their personal stash of M&M’s.  It’s gonna look good no matter what you decide to use it for.  The diameter is 7 ¼” with a height of 2 ¾” and a depth of 1 ¾”.  The volume measured at 3 cups measured to the brim.  That doesn’t mean you can’t pile 4 to 4 1/2 cups of goodies in it.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  Using this combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  28Sep19  BLHB75  $30.00   Free standard shipping within the Continental United States only.  All other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

Every time I look at one of my turnings from cedar elm I am amazed at the natural colors of this wood.  Truly remarkable.  This nice bowl is just right for candies, nuts and other tasty treats.  Some folks may decide to have it sitting on a sideboard as a catch all bowl for keys and change.  It does hold a fair amount as the volume came to 3 cups.  That’s a lot of pistachios, mixed nuts, or M&M’s!  The diameter of the bowl is 7” with a height of 4”.  The depth came to 2 ¾”.  There is even a little knot in the bowl, but not to worry.  The bowl does hold water just fine.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then the finishing was done with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  Using the combination such as that gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  26Jul19  BLCE14   $30.00  Free Standard Shipping within Continental United States.

Gracious Cedar Elm Pedestal Bowl

This is the first piece of cedar elm that I have turned in quite some time.  A lot of folks say they have never heard of the wood, but it is quite prevalent in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and a few other states.  It is also known as Texas Elm.  This bowl has some natural defects in it that I felt needed to stay for rustic appearance.  You will find some cracks that I reinforced with clear glue and natural dust and some blemishes in the wood.  The bowl does hold liquids to the amount of 3 cups.  The diameter is 6 ¾” with a height of 3” and a depth of 2 inches.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  This gives the bowl a nice hard natural finish that you may use with confidence.    13May19  BLCE6  $30.00  Free shipping within Continental United States.

Delightful White Oak Pedestal Bowl

530;420;aa79d9626815ef0ece25f0be5e659e3016e0fff7530;420;51b0101aa23b3789fd8430d9fe26ccfdb20d77ec530;420;94a44e9ee2fcf75abda3cd0273fe0b53a7686a32530;420;cecde87c96f161a2dfa5ce9892a4cd6f933b7d9c530;420;cb76b1fd170c5fe506b0f7876704c142cbc7d78c530;420;3f797b5d1f54557970f909bec722c8e94a3f923d530;420;1bfcaefd8273e21137618eb55ee52f9ea05f8d07530;420;617afb11c759cafc23a140585eff54b650e5d9ca

Without any discussion, I think all will look at this bowl and agree that it is delightful!  With the grain patterns that naturally come with White Oak, along with the coloring make this a bowl that will work with pretty much any décor.  You can just picture this bowl sitting on your table full of nuts and other tasty treats.  For it’s size I think with it holding 3 cups is really handy.  The diameter is 7 ¾” with a height of 2 3/4”.  The depth comes to 1 ½”.  After sanding the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  Then it was finished with a mixture of walnut oil and shellac a bit heavy on the shellac.  This bowl is not meant to hold liquids.  It may or may not but just keep in mind that was not the intent of the turner.  One of a kind so don’t snooze on this.  BLWO14  5Oct18  $31.50  Free Shipping Within the Continental United States

Splendiferous Pecan Centerpiece Bowl

Some may be wondering where in the world did I come up with the word splendiferous from.  Well, I really don’t know but it does sound good, doesn’t it?  This fine looking bowl will look absolutely great sitting on anybody’s table as a centerpiece.  That is one of the really nice things about the natural color of pecan wood.  It pretty much fits in anywhere.  You will find the makings of a knot hole in the center of the bottom but not to worry, it does not go all the way through.  This bowl held 6 cups of water just fine.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  I wanted this bowl to have a more natural satin sheen to it and I think that was accomplished.  Using the combination that was used here gives the bowl a nice hard natural finish.  The bowl measures 10 ¼”, the height is 3” and the depth is 2”.  26Mar18  BLP185  $40.00 and $14.00 S&H
