Gorgeously Colored Pecan Wood Pedestal Bowl

One of the great things about a pedestal bowl is all the different usages you may come up with for it.  One like this bowl, turned from gorgeous pecan wood may be used as a serving bowl, a display centerpiece bowl, and even a candy/nut bowl.  Some might place it on their sideboard and use it as a catch all bowl for change and keys.  It certainly is fine to have edible items in it as the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then the finishing was done with shellac and a walnut oil based wax.  Using these materials gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  The diameter is 9 ¼” with a height of 4 ¼”.  The depth is 2” with a volume measuring at 4 cups.  Lots of neat looking color to this bowl to make is so attractive as well as some minor natural defects in the wood I left to give it more rustic appeal.  8Mar20  BLP243  $42.50 and $7.00 S&H  Shipping price listed is for Continental United States only.  Other areas contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

Hackberry Munchies Bowl

First of all, the spalting in this bowl is really fabulous.  And I had not a thing to do with it.  That is all thanks to Mamma Nature.  Along with some fine color and grain patterns this bowl is super nice.  I am responsible for the shaping of the bowl but that is all.  This bowl is really just right for munchies such as your favorite nuts and candies.  Of course you might want to use it as a catch all bowl for keys and change.  The bowl is 7 1/4" in diameter, 4 1/4" high, and has a depth of 2 1/2".  Measuring the volume it came to 3 cups.  The wood was sealed with a couple of coats of food grade walnut oil.  The finishing was done with multiple coats (I lost track) of walnut oil based wax.  Using these materials gives the bowl a nice long lasting natural finish.  Totally renewable with regular olive oil if the wood gets a bit dry.  23Feb20 BLHB80 $35.00 and $6.00 S&H.  Shipping price listed is for Continental United States only.  Other areas contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

Pecan Wood Candy/Nut Pedestal Bowl

540;430;76d7412162008208a6286cc6999d35c9d2b894a8540;430;5f6752b994999656df79400b666e40fad5e66afa540;430;8105f7583757037ea34a8f60a9c0213c49a9449d540;430;9f8b03229103c8132559ef56f05eed2acbfa6d45540;430;dfb0108621295746202357faa7e6d23d445c30d7540;430;28afba89e4b8e87420e0a124c4bd08b5d91de7b1540;430;1820c8b0208191212f2d14f64d0bebc14cc97845540;430;3283e57c8299944bc18d1cdb13c86d88db2aa8b5

When you look at the natural colors of this wood, you would almost need to call it sumptuous.  Pecan wood is truly a good looking wood.  The grain pattern as well a some spalting lines make this smallish sized pedestal bowl perfect sized for holding your favorite nuts or candies.  Now some folks will be tempted to use it as a catch all bowl for keys and change and the like.  Just go ahead!  The bowl does hold measuring to the brim 3 cups.  The diameter is 7 3/4" with a height of 2 1/2".  The depth of the bowl is 1 1/2".  After several sandings the bowl was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  After that dried and soaked in, the bowl was finished with 2 coats of a lemon oil wax.  This gives the bowl a more natural looking finish similar to a semi gloss.  26Jan20 BLP239 $35.00 and $6.00 S&H Shipping price listed is for standard shipping within the Continental United States only.  Other areas contact me with zip code for shipping cost.

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
