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?

There is no doubt that this bowl is unusual.  And, beautiful.  Naturally beautiful.  When you take the natural coloration of pecan wood, and you add the spalting that is self evident, you have something really special.   I want to make sure that I get this in, this bowl will not hold liquids so it is mainly for displaying things.  Fruits, nuts, candies, etc..  All dry items, please.  With the way the cracking is on the inside bottom area I was unable to seal it good to hold liquids.  But, all was reinforced with clear glue and natural dust.  Some may not have noticed, but this bowl also has 7 sides.  Yep.  Count ‘em.  7.  Definitely unusual for a bowl.  The general diameter is 9” with a height of 3 ½” and a depth of 2 ¾”.  The volume was measured at 5 cups.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  A combination such as this gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  10Dec18  BLP208  $40.00 and free shipping within Continental United States.

Colorful?  No doubt about that is there?  This pecan bowl really has some unusual coloring about it.  Add some tiny knots and spalting, this bowl really does stand out.  On the lip there is a knot spot that I just had to leave alone for a rustic appeal.  Yes, you will find some defects in this smallish sized bowl that just add to the handmade appeal.  The diameter of the bowl is 7 ½” with a height of 3” and a depth of 2”.  The volume measured to 3 cups.  Not bad, not bad at all.  That could very well be a nice amount of pistachios, almonds, cashews or other tasty treats.  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.  10Dec18  BLP209  28.00 and free shipping within Continental United States.

First thing some folks are gonna say is what in the world is a nonagon?  It’s a 9 sided object.  This pecan bowl has 9 sides.  How about that?  Seen one before this one?  Probably not.  This beautiful wood has such natural coloring and spalting in it that it almost has a marbled look to it.  When you look at the second photo there is a spot on one side that seems to want to stay sorta white in color no matter what I do.  So, there it is as it wants to be.  This bowl has simple yet graceful lines to it.  You might use it for nuts or candies or other tasty tidbits.  The general diameter is 7 ½” with a height of 3” and a depth of 2”.  The volume measures to just over 2 cups.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  With a combination like that the bowl has a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  5Dec18  BLP207  $30.00 and $5.00 S&H within Continental United States.

This 6 sided bowl turned from beautiful pecan wood truly is exquisite.   After all, take a look at the grain patterns along with the spalting lines that Nature added.  The bowl holds a useful 2 ½ cups.  That is a pretty fair amount of pistachios or other tasty goodies.  The diameter of the bowl is 7 ½” with a height of 2 1/2” and a depth of 1 ¾”.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  Using this combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  Great bowl for nuts, candies, and even as a catch all bowl for keys and change.  4Dec18  BLP206  $30.00 and $5.00 S&H within Continental United States.

Amazing?  Oh, yeah.  This burl bowl turned from pecan wood is definitely that.  It has a bit of everything going for it.  You have knots, natural edge, spalting and beautiful grain pattern.  When you look at the bottom you see a knot that has a crack in it that I left alone.  That just makes this bowl more special.  Fellow turners will tell you that when one is turning a bowl such as this, you are taking a few risks in not knowing what is further in the wood.  It could simply blow apart on you.  This one held together nicely.  The widest point on this bowl is 8” and the narrowest is 7 ½”.  The height is 2 ¾” and a depth of 2”.  The volume measured to being 2 ½ cups.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil, 2 coats.  The finishing was done with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  This combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  This is a great candy or nut bowl.  4Dec18  BLP205  $30.00 and $5.00 S&H within Continental United States.

This bowl is something of a landmark for me.  As the title says, it is the 200th pecan wood bowl.  That is actually not accurate as there was a decent period of time after I started turning that I did not catalogue the bowls and whatever that I turned.  Going by photo records that I have this in reality is the 340th pecan bowl.  All in all, I have turned not quite 1500 bowls in all woods.  But, I need to stick to the official record of catalogue numbers.  Right?  Sorta, maybe.  Anyway this bowl has all kinds of things going for it.  Wonderful natural colors, spalting, minor cracks, knotholes, and even a couple of wormholes.  Worms are gone, yes.  Looking at the large knothole on the inside you see some amazing red color.  I did not do that.  That occurred to my astonishment and approval naturally with the natural dust and clear glue I use.  How it happened I don’t know but I do love it.  The other knotholes and the one worm hole on the inside were filled in the same way.  The bowl does hold liquids just fine with a capacity of ¾ gallon.  Some of the minor cracks on the outside I left looking that way but I did reinforce them to make sure they went nowhere.   You even have a lip for easy holding.  The bowl measures 10 ¾” on the outside and has an inside diameter of 9”.  The height is 4” with a depth of 3”.  In case you need to know the bowl weighs just a hair over 2 pounds.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil then finished with several coats of a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  This combination gives the bowl a nice hard natural finish.  21Oct18  BLP200  $48.50  and Free Shipping Within Continental United States.

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 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

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

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!

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
