Hollow Form Bowls/Vessels

Hollow form bowls and such are beautiful creations.  They can be rather hard to get even on the sides from top to bottom as well as really smooth on the inside.  It takes special scrapers to get the final workings done or otherwise you will end up with really heavy thick walls.  I hope you will look at these and appreciate the work that does go into them.  Plus an added nicety to them is that they can be a lot of fun to turn.  So take a good look at these.  More will be coming soon.

Pecan Wood Hollow Form Candy/Nut Bowl


You might say this pecan wood bowl is cute.  Some might call it really beautiful.  Others will say it is marvelous.  All would be right.  When you take in the natural colors of this wood along with some spalting lines you have a bowl that will look good anywhere.  Fill it with your favorite nuts or candies.  Some might go and use it as a catch all bowl for keys and change, while some might put some potpourri in it.  Don’t dismiss the idea of a big fat candle sitting in it, either.  The outside diameter is 7 ½” with an inside diameter of 4 ¼”.  The height is 2” with a depth of 1 ¾”.  The volume measures at 2 cups.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  Then for finishing it received a thick coat of walnut oil based wax that sat overnight.  That was then buffed at high speed and then received another coat of walnut oil based wax and that was buffed.  Doing that gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish that is easily renewed if needed with olive oil.  4Aug20  BLP260  $35.00  Qualifies for free shipping in United States.
