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?

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

I think amazing is a good word to describe this smallish natural edge bowl.  Turned from pecan, the chances are really good that the bark will stay in place.  Also, this wood is quite nice looking!  When you look at the color and grain pattern you realize that it is hard to beat.  This piece is great for holding candy, nuts and other tasty little treats.  OK.  Yeah.  You might also use it as a catch all bowl for keys and change.  Makes no difference what you use it for it’s gonna look good doing it.  The bowl does hold about 2 cups volume.  The highest point is 3 ¾” and has a depth of 2” measured from the lowest point.  The diameter is 6”.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with spray shellac.  This was used in an effort to keep the bark in place as well as reinforcing it with clear glue.  Enjoy this one of a kind piece!  2Sep18  NEP37  $30.00 and $8.00 S&H

I think most anybody would be really happy having this bowl sitting on their table as a centerpiece.  After all, it has bark and the beautiful color of pecan wood.  One problem that a turner runs into while turning a piece such as this is the final sanding.  Sometimes you have to decide whether you are going to get that particular spot and risk damaging your hand one way or the other, or just get it the best you can.  You will find a couple of spots on this piece that are like that.  On the ends of the main body you can have some nuts or whatever sitting there as it is concave for that purpose.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture giving a nice hard long lasting finish.  The bark was reinforced with clear glue.  The main body is 10 ¾” long and 9” wide.  The bowl is 6 ½” in diameter, 2 ¾” at the highest point, 1 ¾” deep and has a volume measuring at 1 ½ cups.  You not find another bowl like this one.  17Jul18  NEP36  $42.00  and $8.00 S&H

You might want to call this bowl cute or even snazzy.  No matter what you might call it the fact that it is a great bowl for goodies is undeniable.  Now your goodies may be M&M’s as in the photos, or pistachios, or some other tasty treat that trips your trigger.  Seeing this bowl is turned from pecan wood it has a sumptuous natural beauty.   The wood was first sealed with two rubbed in coats of food grade walnut oil.  Then it was finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture that was rubbed in as well.   This gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  The bowl is 6 ¾” long and 4 ½” wide.  The height is 1 ¾” and the depth is 1 ¼”.  The volume measures to about 1 cup.  8Jul18  BLP191  $27.00 and $8.00 S&H

There is no doubt in my mind that this awesome pecan bowl is a rustic gem in the truest sense.  The minor cracking, the knot hole on the outside, and the natural coloration make this a true winner.  This will look really good sitting in the middle of your table full of fruits and other tasty treasures.  The volume of this bowl measured at ½ gallon to the brim.  That doesn’t mean you can’t pile more in it!  Smashed spuds and some salads will pile nicely in this bowl.  The diameter is 9 ½” with a height of 3 ¼” and a depth of 2 ¾”.  The wood was first sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  This gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  Some of the cracks were filled with natural pecan dust and clear glue.  Just enough to seal them and keep the rustic appeal of the bowl.  28Apr18  BLP187  $36.50  and $13.00 S&H

Oh, the natural beauty of a bowl with bark still on it.  How can one pass it up?  I normally do not have a base quite as large as this but I didn’t want to jeopardize that great looking knot in it.  So, it has a bit larger base but so what?  A knot like that is worth it.  This bowl has a nice capacity of 2 cups measured to the lower brim, which does not mean that it is limited to that amount of your favorite treats that will just pile up in it.  The diameter of the bowl is 7 ¼” and the height is 4 ½”.  The depth came to 2 ½”.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  The bark was reinforced with clear drying glue to help keep it in place.  Then the bowl was sprayed with 2 coats of shellac.  The spray was used to help penetrate and keep the bark intact.  Do not pass this up.  10Jun18  NEP35  $35.00 and $11.00 S&H

This delightful looking cupcake/pastry stand is really good looking.  There was a crack that occurred during drying that I decided to do something with other than ditching the piece of wood.  So, I first filled it with coffee grounds and clear glue, then added crushed turquoise on top of that.  To me that made it even more attractive and certainly utilized a piece of wood that some would have tossed.  After the filling was done and then all the sanding, the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  After that the finishing was done with a walnut oil based wax.  This gives the stand a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  And, it is totally renewable with olive oil when needed.  Care instructions are included.  The diameter is 8 ¼” with a height of 2 ½”.  The base diameter is 4”.  5Jun18  SDP55  $30.00 and $11.00 S&H

This stand is certainly beautiful and useful at the same time.  Now how can you beat that?  I don’t think you can.  There is a small amount of natural edge on the lip that adds some rustic appeal to the piece.  The line that I burned into the base area is decorative only.  The wood has a little bit of the usual natural flaws that I prefer to leave as I think that makes the stand even more desirable.  The wood was first sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a mixture of walnut oil and shellac.  Using a combination such as this gives the stand a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  The diameter is 9 ¼” with a base diameter of 5” and a height of 3 ¼”.  Don’t pass this one up!  3Jun18  SDP54  $30.00 and $12.00 S&H

I don’t think there is a more unique candy or nut vessel than a natural edge bowl.   They certainly are attention getters and conversation pieces.  This piece, turned from pecan wood is no exception.  The natural beauty of the wood along with the bark along the whole lip makes this a winner.  The bark was reinforced with clear glue and shellac in an effort to make it stay.  If not abused, it should stay attached for a long time.  The widest point is 8” and 7” at the narrowest.  The highest is 3” and the lowest 2”.  The depth is 1 ½” and the volume measures about 1 ½ cups.  You will find the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and finished with shellac.  I used straight shellac in an effort for reinforcing the bark.  6Apr18  NEP33  $28.50 and $11.00 S&H

There just isn’t any doubt in my mind that you will find this pecan bowl stunning to the eye.  The natural coloration that Mamma Nature provided make this bowl a winner.  It also has a fairly large capacity for one of this size with it measuring 5 cups volume.  The diameter of the bowl is 8 ½” with a height of 3” with the depth coming to 2 ¼”.  Just enough extra wood in the base to add to the stability of the piece.  Use this as a medium sized serving bowl for veggies or even smashed taters.  Some folks might use it as a popcorn bowl.  I can even picture it sitting in the middle of your table full of fruit and nuts.  The wood was sealed with two coats of food grade walnut oil and then finished with a couple of coats of a walnut oil based wax.  Using this method gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  Also, it allows you to still feel the grain of the wood.  16Dec17  BLP176  $30.00 and $12.00 S&H

This is without any doubt a classic!  The simple lines and the natural beauty of pecan wood make this bowl one to behold!  I can claim credit only for the design of the bowl, not the beauty of the wood.  The diameter is 11 ½” with a height of 3 ¼” and a depth of 2 ½”.  The volume of the bowl measured at ¾ gallon.  The bowl weighs 2 ½ pounds.  The wood was sealed with a couple of coats of food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  This combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  Don’t pass this one up.  It’s gonna look real good sitting on your dining table full of goodies!  15Dec17 BLP175  $48.50 and $15.00 S&H

Pecan wood is an absolutely beautiful wood whose natural colors do not need any help from us.  After you take a look at the light and darker colors you will agree with me.  Though I am calling it a cupcake or pasty stand, you just go ahead and put whatever you want on it.  You will find I burned a line in the rim area for decoration as well as a couple in the base area.  Though they were reinforced with clear glue there is some minor cracks that are going no where.  Just kinda helps with the rustic appeal of the piece.  The diameter is 8 ½” with a height of 2 ¼” and a base diameter of 3 ¼”.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  This gives the stand a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  It also allows you to still feel the grain in the wood.  22Nov17  SDP51  $30.00 and $12.00 S&H

This will be a wonderful addition to anybody’s home.   As most cooks and bakers know it’s all about presentation.  Now picture this stand with 4 or 5 cupcakes on it.  Or some other tasty morsel!  I was able to leave a little bit of natural edge on it.  Also I burned 3 lines into the base for decorative purposes only.  The diameter of the top is 8 ½” and the base measures at 3 ¾”.  The height of the stand is 2 ¾”.  I thought about getting some cupcakes and using them in the photos but the only problem with doing that is nothing would get done in the shop until I ate them all.  Sorry.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  This combination gives the stand a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  20Nov17  SDP50  $30.00 and $12.00 S&H

This is without a doubt a fabulous looking medium sized pecan wood serving bowl.  And, for the photos I put pecans in it.  Why not?  You will find this bowl works well with any décor and it also holds 4 cups measured to the brim.  So that makes it a 4 cupper!  The diameter is 9 ¾” with a height of 2”.  The depth is right at 1 ¼”.  Fill this bowl up with salad or whatever you wish.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  Using a combination such as this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  Certainly one of a kind and not one to pass up on.  20Nov17  BLP173  $35.00 and $12.00 S&H

Sometimes when a person sees a 3 corner bowl like this one they are amazed with it.  It captivates their mind on how it was made.  Not being one to give away my secrets I just tell them it takes a bit of time to do one, and it does.  This particular fine looking bowl was turned from pecan which is gorgeous in its own right.  So fill it with your favorite candies, nuts, small fruits and other goodies.  Some might use it as a potpourri bowl as well.  Many, many uses.  The bowl averages 6” in total diameter, 4” in height and has a measured depth of 2” up to the level of where water will run out of it.  The volume is 1 cup.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  Enjoy!

Dazzling Spalted Pecan Bowl

The natural color and all the heavy spalting in this bowl certainly does make it rather dazzling.  And with a volume capacity of 5 cups you will find many uses for it.  Use it as a serving bowl as it does hold liquids or as a display bowl for fruits and nuts as the photos suggest.  Fill it with M&M’s or just anything that you might want to.  The diameter of the bowl is 10” with a height of 2 ½” and a depth of 1 ½”.  With a semi pedestal foot the depth is right where it needs to be.  I burned a line in the foot only for decorative purposes.  You will find some natural defects in the wood such as worm holes which do add rustic characteristics.  The wood was first sealed with a couple of coats of food grade walnut oil.  The finishing work was done with a mixture of walnut oil and shellac heavy on the shellac for more sheen.  This combo gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  12Sep17  BLP163  $30.00 and $12.00 S&H

This gorgeous bowl is so good looking you will just love sitting it on your table full of beautiful salad.  Just saying this now, but you might even use it for popcorn.  Or even veggies.  You might prefer to use it as a display bowl full of nuts and fruits.  So many uses for such a great looking bowl turned from pecan wood.  It has great natural coloration and some added spalting to give a nice while slight rustic appeal.  This bowl should pretty much work with any décor.  This bowl has a fairly large capacity as the volume up to the brim measured at a ½ gallon, and it holds liquids quite well.  The diameter is 12 ½” with a height of 2 ¼” and a depth of about 1 ¼”.  The wood was first sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a mixture of walnut oil and shellac.  The mix was done very heavy on the shellac for more sheen.  The bowl has a nice subtle shine to it which gives a more natural wood look to the bowl.  Using the combination of the oil and shellac gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  14Mar17  BLP147  $42.50 and $16.00 S&H
