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.  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.  OK?

Wonderfully Colored Pecan Serving Bowl

Oh, my!  Does this bowl have wonderful natural coloring or not?  You just gotta say yes it does.  You take into consideration what natural colors Mamma Nature put in this wood, then add some great spalting and you have a true winner.  There is some neat looking knot holes trying to form on the lip that I left for a real nice rustic appeal.  That does not take away from the bowl’s measured capacity of 6 cups.  You may use this bowl with total confidence as the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  After a couple of coats of that the bowl was finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  This gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  There is a nice lip for those who like them for ease in handling.  The diameter is 10” with a height of 3 ½” and a depth of 2 ½”.  Great sized bowl with many uses for you to explore.  6Feb19  BLP211  $40.00  Free shipping within the Continental United States.

Everybody needs a bowl like this.  Just think how nice it will look sitting on your desk, dining table, or even sideboard.  Fill it up with your favorite nuts or candies.  You might even use it as a catch all bowl for keys and change.  Some folks even use them for putting those larger diameter candles in.  Makes no difference what you use it for, this little bowl is gonna look good doing it.  I did not measure the volume as it’s really not a serving bowl.  It is 7 ½” long and 4 ½” wide.  The highest point is 1 ¾” and the lowest is ¾”.  Sealed the wood with food grade walnut oil and then finished it with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  This combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  14Jul19  BLP218  $27.50  Free Standard Shipping Within Continental United States.

No need to add anything to this beautiful pecan bowl to make it stand out.  The natural color of this bowl with a tad bit of spalting added to it just simply makes it easy on the eyes, for sure.  There is a bit of a crack on the lip that I reinforced for good measure with clear glue and natural dust.  This little natural defect helps add to the rustic appearance of this bowl.  Not that pecan needs any help!  The diameter of the bowl is 10 ½” and the height is 3 ¼”.  The depth comes to 2 ½” and the volume measures ½ gallon to the brim.  That is a lot of veggies, smashed spuds, and other tasty items.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  A combination like this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  There is a nice lip for ease in handling.  Certainly a one of a kind piece.  24Jun19  BLP217  $48.50  Free Standard Shipping within Continental United States.

Once in a while I turn a bowl that says give me some turquoise!!!  Well, who am I not to listen to it?  The turquoise on the lip started out being in a really nice looking gap in the wood.  After all that was set, while sanding part of that broke off, so had to reshape it.  Then to make things look good I had to add more turquoise to that area.  All well and good and looks just fine.  There was another area under the lip that I added some to as well.  So for those who like some extra color added to the wood beside what Mamma Nature gave it, this bowl is perfect for you.  The diameter is 8 ¾”, the height is 2 ¼”, and the depth 1 ¾”.  The volume measured to 4 cups.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then the bowl was finished with two coats of a walnut oil and shellac mixture.  This gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  14Jun19  BLP216  $35.00  Free Standard Shipping Within Continental United States

Using the word elegant may not give this bowl it’s due.  After all it has lots of beautiful color naturally.  You will find some cracks that were sealed up with clear glue and coffee grounds.  Nothing like keeping things as natural as possible.  Pecan has some great looking grain patterns as well.  As far as capacity for this bowl it measured at one half gallon.  The outer diameter is 9 ¼” and the inner diameter is 7 ¼”.  The height comes to 3 ½” and the depth is just under 3”.  You have a nice lip for ease in handling the bowl.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a mixture of walnut oil and shellac.  This gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  You will find a couple of defects in the wood on the inside that just would not sand totally smooth.  Enjoy this fantastic bowl!  28May19  BLP214  $42.50  Free standard shipping within Continental United States.

A lot of people will call this 3 corner bowl cute.  OK.  It’s cute.  It’s rustic.  What more can you ask for?  Oh, yeah.  It’s turned from pecan wood.  To tell a little secret on myself, this is actually sort of a failure.  This was going to be a 3 cornered jar, but the lid material did not work out so it became a bowl.  This extremely lightweight bowl is great for putting your pistachios in or other tasty nuts or other treats.  When you add the knot holes and grain pattern of this wood, you just cannot go wrong.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  The finishing was done with a mix of walnut oil and shellac, light on the shellac for a more subtle sheen.  Then it was buffed.  The diameter is 6” with a height of 3 ½” and a depth of 2” measured to the lowest point on the side.  The volume measured at 1 ½ cups.  Don’t pass this up!  26Nov18  BLP203  $27.50  Free shipping within Continental United States.

Simply Lovely Pecan Wood Serving Bowl

I know you hear me say it a lot, but it is a true fact.  Not everybody needs a large bowl.  But pretty much everybody needs a smaller sized bowl.  This bowl fits the size that everybody needs.  With a diameter of 9” and a height of 1 ½” it has a needful size.  When you add to that the depth of 1” and a volume measured at 2 ½ cups, this bowl is quite useful.  Use it as a serving bowl or even as a display bowl for fruits and nuts and such.  The wood was sealed and finished with a micro-crystalline wax that is water and fingerprint resistant.  You can still feel the grain of the wood which to me is a plus.  14Oct18  BLP199  $28.00  and Free Shipping Within the Continental United States
