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.

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


Ultimate Pecan Candy Bowl


This is in my opinion without a doubt the ultimate candy jar.  After all it was turned from pecan wood and that along makes it a real winner.  Measured to the brim, it holds 1 ½ cups.  Doesn’t mean you can’t pile more M&M’s in it than that.  UhUh.  Pile ‘em on.  Those peanut M&M’s I used for the photos were quite a distraction.  I promise I didn’t eat them.  Yet.  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 natural finish that gives off a more natural satin sheen.  The bowl is 5” in diameter, 2 ½” high and 1 ½” deep.  Great gift item or get it for yourself!  26Mar18  BLP186  $22.00 and $8.00 S&H


Red Oak Burl Pedestal Bowl


Storyline: I cut this burl off a red oak log a while back.  Not sure just how long but at least 4 months ago, I am sure.  So, this piece of wood just sat out in the weather in the log yard all that time.  It seems to me that doing that really helped with the way this wood looks.  Being from burl the grain patterns change in it all the time and you can really see that in the last photo.  There is a little bit of natural flaw in the wood in the way of some burring on the outside.  The bowl holds 5 cups volume.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture, relatively heavy on the shellac for a brilliant shine.  This combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  The diameter is 8 ½” with a height of 3 ¾” and a depth of 2 ½”.  With the volume it is capable of this bowl has many, many uses.  Just think of this sitting on your table as a centerpiece.  4Feb18  BLRO72  $36.50  and $12.00 S&H


6 1/2" Pecan Candy/Nut Pedestal Bowl


You might think that this bowl is so good looking that it would be bad to put something in it.  Well, OK.  But I have no problem with it being full of candies, nuts and other tasty treats.  With the natural coloration of the pecan wood, it is a gorgeous bowl for sure.  The bowl holds a nice 2 cups measured to the brim.  The diameter is 6 ½” with a base diameter of 2 3/4”.  The height comes to 2 ½” with a depth of 1 ½”.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with 2 coats of a walnut oil based wax.  Using a combination like this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  28Jan18  BLP181  $26.50 and $10.00 S&H


Cute Elm Pedestal Bowl


I don’t think anybody can say this nice little bowl ain’t cute.  After all it was turned from elm, it is pedestal styled, and it is good looking.  Perfect for putting all kinds of goodies in.  Fill it up with your favorite goodies or even use it for potpourri.  The diameter is 5 ¼” with a height of 2 ½” and a depth of 1 ¼”.  The volume measures at 1 cup.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  Totally renewable with olive oil.  With this sealing and finish the bowl has a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  13Sep17  BLE58  $20.00 and $8.00


Wonderful Pecan Pedestal Serving Bowl


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
