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

Very Unique White Oak Pedestal Bowl

640;480;b4b529e232add0d4cb8552bcfdceec9c409a9ca8640;480;22ea11b0a5d1469d3b74b44b68c4e5a4a49795cf640;480;fdb8a554df44e812f4bd40fe4adff6fee87c7acf640;480;60f9320cb0bc08701a90d70159643ba377a244a4640;480;b7c68247bdbfd0f1976a6d0a9986705a725955be640;480;86f1225cf6c83d7368265a9421a5208350e22832

There should be no doubt that this is a unique looking bowl.  First it’s turned from white oak which can be an accomplishment in itself.  Second, you have a great grain pattern.  Third you have some nice natural edge.  Then take into consideration the cracks that this wood is so known for.  Now some of the cracks I filled with some clear glue and coffee grounds.  I just wanted to make sure the bowl remained stable for years to come.  So I am sure that there are other ways the bowl is unique, but I running out of words here.  Oh, yeah.  It’s a pedestal bowl which makes it great for nuts and candies and other nice things.  The diameter is 8” with a height of 3”.  The depth is 1 1/2 “ and the volume is approximately 3 cups.  The wood was first sealed with food grade walnut oil and then buffed with tripoli wood buffing compound.  The finishing was done with shellac with a bit of walnut oil based wax mixed in.  Using these materials and methods gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  28Dec20  BLWO30  $38.50  Qualifies for free shipping in the United States.

Cottonwood Candy/Nut Pedestal Bowl

It is certainly possible that when you look at this bowl it will give you a warm and fuzzy feeling.  Cottonwood has a habit of doing that.  The soft grain pattern and colors of this wood need no help from man for it to be gorgeous.  Cottonwood is a soft wood yet amazingly durable.  The western bound settlers in the United States found this out and used it for most everything.  The diameter is 7 ¼” with a base diameter of 3 ¼”.  The height is 3” and the depth is 1 ¾”.  The volume measured at 2 cups.  That’s a lot of candy or nuts folks.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  Then buffed with a tripoli wood buffing compound.  The finishing was done with lemon oil wax and then buffed after three coats was rubbed in over a period of two days.  Then it was buffed again at high speed.  Using these materials and methods gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  11Jan21  BLCW111  $35.00  Qualifies for free shipping within the United States.

Now and then wood of one kind or another will throw me for a loop.  The cottonwood that this nice bowl was turned from is one of those times.  If you look at the base you will find some red that sorta defies logic.  One on area of the side you also find some yellow that does the same.  I am sure somebody smarter than me will tell you it’s an algae thing or the other but I don’t know what causes it.  Yet it does add a neat appearance.  The diameter is 6 ½” with a height of 3”.  The base diameter is 2 ¾”.  The depth is 1 ¾” and the volume is 2 cups.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  Then buffed with a tripoli wood buffing compound.  The finishing was done with lemon oil wax and then buffed after three coats was rubbed in over a period of two days.  Then it was buffed again at high speed.  Using these materials and methods gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  17Jan21  BLCW112  $35.00  Qualifies for free shipping within the United States

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   Shipping cost listed for within Continental United States.  Other areas contact me with zip code for shipping cost.

I don’t think anyone is going to argue that this is a wonderful looking bowl that will look good as a display centerpiece.  Just imagine this bowl sitting on your dining table full of fruits and nuts and other tasty treats.  Being white oak, it does have a lot of odd and end cracks in it.  That just adds to the rustic appeal of the bowl.  There is a real interesting crack where there was a burl that I reinforced with clear glue and natural dust.  I felt that just needed to stay!  The diameter is 9” with the base diameter being 3 ½”.  The height is 4 ½” with a depth of 2 ½”.  The bowl does hold ½ gallon measured to the brim.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then the finishing was done with shellac and a bit of walnut oil based wax.  Using these ingredients gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  7Jun20  BLWO24  $50.00 and $7.00 S&H  Shipping price listed is for Continental United States only.  Other areas contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

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.
