Pecan Turnings

OK, folks!  What will be on this page are serving bowls, display bowls, and serving and display dishes from that fabulous wood called pecan.  Which by the way just happens to be the Texas State Tree.  Another variety of pecan bowls may be seen on the Pedestal Bowl page.  So similar to hickory, they are often confused.  The natural beauty of this wood is really something to behold, so take a look and don't be surprised if you are just slightly awed.

Let’s be honest with ourselves.  Pretty much everybody has seen a nice wood bowl and said to themselves, “I don’t have a need for that”.  Then a few hours later, or even the next day you say to yourself, “Seft, I should have bought that bowl.”  Even though I can’t see ya do it, all that fit into that category raise your hands.  My hand is up.  This beautiful pecan wood bowl has a lot of natural beauty to it.  The colors, the grain patterns and the spalting lines make it one to want.  This bowl, after sanding to 800 grit was buffed in three stages with a new buffing system I have.  The wood was then sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a layer of carnauba wax and then walnut oil based wax.  After drying the bowl was buffed again to a nice smooth finish with a nice sheen.  This all gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  The diameter is 9 ½” with a height of 3”.  The depth is 2 ½” with a volume of 6 cups.  26Jul20  BLP259  $48.50  Qualifies for free shipping in the United States.

There is something about hollow form bowls that gains attention.  And if it is turned from some beautiful wood such as pecan, it gets even more attention.  And, believe it or not the smaller they are the harder they can be to hollow out.  This particular bowl is 5 ¾” on the outside and the inside lip is 3” in diameter.  The height is 3” with a depth of 2 ½”.  The volume measures at 2 cups to the brim.  This is a great bowl for candy or nuts and other tasty items.  Of course you might use it as a catch all bowl for keys and change.  Some might even use it to hold a large diameter candle.  It’s gonna look good no matter what you use it for.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  Then the bowl was finished with a walnut oil and shellac mixture.  Also, while the applicator was soaked with the oil and shellac it was dipped in some walnut oil based wax for added beauty.  17Sep18  BLP198  $30.00  Free Shipping Within Continental United States.

Simply put, this bowl will work absolutely great as a candy or nut bowl, or even as a catch all bowl.  Some folks might put some nice smelling potpouri in it as well.  Now myself would have it sitting on my desk full of something really tasty so that whenever someone tried to snitch one or two of them I could whack their knuckles!  The natural colors of pecan wood along with some spalting that Mamma Nature added to it really make this a classy piece.  There are some of the usual imperfections in the wood that I left alone.  The bowl is 9 ½” long and 6 ¼” wide.  The height is 2 ¾” and the depth comes to 2 ¼”.  The volume measured at 2 ½ cups.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil that was allowed to soak in for 24 hours.  The finishing was done with walnut oil based wax which was handrubbed onto the wood and allowed to sit for 24 hours before being wiped down and then buffed.  This gives the bowl a more natural lustre to the wood.  You can also still feel some of the grain in the wood this way.  14Jul20  BLP257  $37.50  Qualifies for free shipping in the United States.

Sometimes I have to admit that pecan wood can even amaze me with the colors it gives forth.  This bowl is certainly no exception to that.  The dark and medium brown colors mixed with some nice spalting really make this bowl stand out.  You will also find a handy lip for ease in handling. Though it certainly holds 4 cups of liquid I think this bowl is better suited as a display bowl for fruits and nuts than being used as a serving bowl.  But, hold on!  You can do that if you want.  After all the bowl was sealed with several coats of food grade walnut oil which basically saturated the wood overnight.  The finishing was done with shellac and with some walnut oil based wax for ease in spreading and penetration.  Using this mixture of ingredients gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  Without a doubt it is one of a kind.  3May20  BLP250  $40.00 and $6.00 S&H  Shipping price listed is for standard shipping with the Continental United States only.  Other areas contact with zip code for shipping costs.

This mid sized bowl, turned from pecan wood has some really great looking natural color to it.  How can you go wrong with this?  You know the answer to that.  Here’s something a bit interesting.  There was a crack that did not go all the way through.  So, to see if I thought it might cause trouble I put about 300 lbs of pressure on it and the crack did not budge.  So, I filled it in with clear glue and natural dust.  Looks mighty good to me.  The bowl is 10 ¼” in diameter, 2 3/8” high and 1 ½” deep.  The volume measured at 5 cups right to the brim.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  Using a combination such as this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  10Nov19  BLP234  $45.00  Free standard shipping within Continental United States only.  Other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

I think it would be hard to argue about how good looking pecan wood is.  And when you look at this multi-sided bowl with its natural colors and some spalting added in, you just can’t argue with it.  This rustic gem has all kinds of things going for it.  You will find some great natural defects in the wood that I made no effort to remedy.  Some defects are just simply too good looking to eliminate.  You might call this bowl 6 sided, but with the way the rest of the edge turned out I decided just to call it mult-isided.  The way I turned the base almost makes it a pedestal bowl, but not quite.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  Using a combination such as this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  22Oct19  BLP231  $42.50  Free standard shipping within Continental United States only.  Other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

Now here is something that you don’t see everyday!  A pecan wood bowl with flared wings like this will look good on any table.  Fill it with your favorite treats whether it is fruits and nuts or candies.  Though not meant to be a serving bowl, it does hold 4 cups of liquid before it ran over the low side.  The minor cracks that you see were filled with clear glue and natural dust to keep things looking as close as possible to the way Mamma Nature wants them.  The length is 11 ½” with a width of 7 ¾”.  The high end is 4 ¼” and the low side is 3”.  The depth is 2”.  This bowl was a bit hazardous to turn with the flared wings.  But, it certainly was fun.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  Using a combination like this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  10Oct19  BLP228   $50.00  Free standard shipping within Continental United States only.  Other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

Take a gander at this beautiful bowl turned from fabulous pecan wood!  It’s a great size for any table being 10 ½” in diameter.  With a height of 3” and a depth of 2”, it holds a volume of 6 cups.  This bowl is a rustic beauty as well.  You will find a couple of old worm holes in it that I sealed up with clear glue and shellac.  The natural swirling of the grain pattern makes this bowl special.  You also have what I call ribbing on the outside for ease in handling as well as they simply look good!  The tiny pedestal on the bottom gives the bowl an appearance that it is floating.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  Using a combination such as this gives this bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  9Oct19  BLP227  $48.50    Free standard shipping within Continental United States only.  Other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

Bowls like this and winged bowls are rather difficult to accomplish, but sure are a lot of fun and certainly challenging.  This bowl being of pecan wood has some great natural coloration in it as well as a tad bit of spalting.  There are even some itsy bitsy knot holes.  For those who are in love with the rustic appeal, this bowl is what you need.  Though it only held 2 cups of water for measuring the volume, you can really pile up your tasty goodies in it.  Any small cracks were sealed up with clear glue and natural dust.  The base diameter is 8 ½” with the lip diameter being 6 ¼”.  The height is 2 ½” and the depth is 2”.  The wood was first sealed with food grade walnut oil while being wet sanded.  After all of that it was sanded on down to the finer grits.  Then it was finished with a walnut oil and shellac mixture with a little bit of walnut oil based wax added.  This was done for better wood penetration and a more lasting finish.  All of this also gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  26Aug19  BLP222  $38.50  Free standard shipping within Continental United States only.  Other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

There is no doubt that when describing the natural colors of this pecan wood bowl that the word superb comes to mind.  You have the natural browns intermixed with some black where some knots were trying to form.  Then you even have some red in there!  Mamma Nature was really good to this wood.  Some might consider it so good looking they might not wish to put anything in it.  Ah, go ahead!  After all the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  The sealing was done after some wet oil sanding to make sure the surfaces were nice and smooth.  Then the finishing was done with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  While that mixture was still quite damp and the bowl was spinning, it received a couple of coats of a walnut oil based wax.  All of this combined provides the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  The diameter of the bowl is 9 ¾” with a height of 3 ¼” and a depth of 2 ½”.  The volume measured at a ½ gallon and the weight of the bowl is a remarkable 1 ½ pounds.  Remarkable looking bowl and it is the 220th pecan bowl I have turned.  12Aug19  BLP220  $47.50  Free shipping within Continental United States.  All other locations contact me with zip code for shipping costs.
