Popcorn Bowls

Let's just face some simple facts.  First, yes.  The only bowls that will be here are bowls designed specifically for luscious popcorn.  Now here is another fact.  You may use this type of bowl for any serving needs that you might have.  Salad, veggies, smashed spuds, fruits.  And, of course popcorn.  What makes a popcorn bowl different from others?  One simple thing.  In the bottom of the bowl there is a trough for catching any unpopped kernels.  Yep.  That's it.  That's all there is to it and I guess there ain't nothing else to say here.

There lots of folks out there who love larger sized bowls.  And, there are lot of folks who like medium sized bowls.  This is what I kinda consider a bowl that is in between.  It’s 13" in diameter, 3 3/4" high and 2 1/2" deep.  This bowl may be used as a nice sized popcorn bowl or as a serving bowl.  It does have the traditional trough in the bottom for catching the unpopped kernels.  But, don’t let that hold you back from filling it with tasty salad!  Or, other tasty things such as veggies, smashed spuds, or fruits.  It does hold 1 gallon measured to the brim.  The wood was sealed with two coats of food grade walnut oil.  After that soaked in really good the bowl was sanded again and buffed.  Then it received two coats of shellac with a bit of walnut oil based wax.  Using the was helps make sure there is a nice even coat of shellac.  Using these materials gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  You will find some natural defects here and there that just add to the rustic appeal of the bowl.  2Feb20 BLCW109 $60.00 and $8.00 S&H Shipping price listed is for standard shipping within the Continental United States.  Other areas contact me with zip code for shipping cost.

Cottonwood, besides being a really nice looking wood has some relatives that you might have heard of.  Aspen and Poplar are in the same genus.  How about that?  This is a soft wood which of course makes it lightweight.  Now I am not gonna tell you that you can only use this bowl for popcorn.  It does have the traditional trough on the inside for unpopped kernels.  You might also want this bowl to do multitasking.  Use it as a salad bowl and even a serving bowl.  Some might even use it as a centerpiece bowl on their table with fruits and decorative items.  The diameter is 15 1/2" with a height of 3".  The depth is 2 1/4" and the volume measured to the brim is 1 gallon.  So, in terms of popcorn you could probably put 2 gallons of popcorn in it.  Great bowl for a family popcorn bowl.  The wood was sealed with two coats of food grade walnut oil.  After that soaked in and was sanded and buffed it recieved two coats of shellac.  After the shellac started setting up, a walnut oil based wax was added to everything.  All this was done to give you the smoothest surfaces possible with this wood.  That is not always an easy task with this wood.  28Jan20 BLCW108 $70.00 and $8.00 S&H Shipping price listed is for standard shipping within the Continental United States.  All other areas contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

What could be better than a popcorn bowl full of freshly popped popcorn? Not much, I think. And, when you add that it was turned from beautiful cottonwood, you really have a rustic looking winner. Cottonwood has a real history with our early settlers and the reasons are numerous. This bowl had some old wormholes in it so I decided to go on and fill them in with clear glue and cottonwood dust. What makes this a popcorn bowl is the trough on the bottom of the inside for unpopped kernels to roll into. Of course you may use it as a regular serving bowl as well. It is truly a multi-tasker. The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then the finishing was done with a walnut oil and shellac mixture. Using a combination such as this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish. The diameter is 11 ½” and the height is 3 ¼”. The depth is 2 ¾” and the volume measured to ¾ gallon to the brim. I figger you can certainly pile a gallon of popcorn in it. 25Nov19 BLCW107 $42.50 Free standard shipping within Continental United States.
