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.

Remarkable Cottonwood Centerpiece Bowl


We all see bowls of one kind or another everyday, I think.  A lot of them are from manmade materials and are simply put, just bowls.  But, now and then we see one that is rather remarkable.  This bowl turned from cottonwood falls into that category.  Not overly large in diameter (10 ¼”), it is still of a decent capacity of holding ¾ gallon measured to the brim.  With a height of 4 ¾” and a depth of 3 ¼”, all combined make this bowl remarkable.  Lest we forget the gorgeous natural colors of this wood.  The light and dark colors really make it stand out.  Whether you use it as a serving bowl or a display bowl for nuts and fruits, you will be proud to have this bowl sitting on your table.  Friends and family are gonna comment about it as well.  The wood was sealed with two coats of food grade walnut oil.  The finishing was done with a mixture of walnut oil and shellac.  Then the bowl was buffed with super fine steel wool.  Get this for yourself or even for a good friend or family member.  21Nov18  BLCW98  $47.50  $5.00 S&H Continental United States


Delightful White Oak Pedestal Bowl


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


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
