What a wonderful looking bowl!  You will consider yourself a very lucky person if you buy this one.  All the gorgeous colors you see are totally natural.  A rustic beauty for sure you will see some cracking on the outside but don’t be concerned.  Any cracking you see was left purposely for a more rustic and natural appeal.  It is spacious for a bowl of this size as it holds 3 cups measured to the brim.  Great bowl for nuts, candies and other tasty treats.  The bowl is 7 ¼” in diameter, 3” high and has a depth of 2”.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  This combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  One of a kind for sure so don’t hesitate to grab it up!  16May18  BLP189  $30.00 and $10.00 S&H

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

Marvelously Spalted Elm Pedestal Bowl

This rustic beauty has all kinds of things going for it.  The spalting that you see in it add a lot as well as the differing coloration.  You will find traces of old worm holes here and there and on the lip in one spot there is part of one that gave that spot a bit of roughness that I thought should stay.  The capacity of the bowl measures at 6 cups up to the brim.  The diameter is 10” with a height of 3 ½”.  The depth comes to 2”.  The wood was sealed with two coats of food grade walnut oil.  Then it was finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  After that dried it was buffed and then given a coat of walnut oil based wax.  All combined gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  13Mar18  BLE63  $32.50 and $12.00 S&H

Red Oak Burl Pedestal Bowl

540;450;4b6ab2c765e0c078fbeaf151eef974b2f2146947540;450;a7fb700743db7186ae65eacd113ede35ed4504df540;450;29a6ba52cbdcff87ac4638e9805cfec4b62bfb8b540;450;0a46845124fd8d512c203c548285e19c835a561c540;450;bbe5f4a8ba52397b34d34f09bc7bc2ebda928ac6540;450;f52bb3ccdd284ebdefac1635a354562b1a427fdc540;450;cd486e0e606c3d116bbafbb2790835c7ef333885540;450;0289f040c252c4017dca7217f076920b6a2ded99

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

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

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

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
