To me this is a rather exceptional looking white oak bowl that may be used for lots of things!  My thoughts while turning it was for it to be a candy or nut bowl.  Now you may disagree and use it as a bowl for holding keys and change.  Well, OK.  It does have many uses, doesn’t it?  The cracks in the wood make this bowl really stand out.  I rarely introduce a bowl like this that won’t hold liquids.  But, hey.  I went through a lot to get this bowl like this and keep it sturdy so enjoy it.  The diameter is 7 ¾” and the height is 3 ¼”.  The depth is 1 ¾” and the volume measures at 2 ½ cups.  By the way I did have the measure the volume using dry beans.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil which soaked in for several hours.  The finishing was done with straight shellac.  Using these materials gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  21Jul20  BLWO26  $37.50  Qualifies for free shipping in the United States.

Sometimes I think it is grand when a plan actually comes together.  So often in turning wood, what you start out with in your mind is not what you end up with.  I wanted a nice pecan wood candy/nut bowl that had some rustic looking natural defects and I got it.  I even got another winner with this one, a worm hole that went all the way through the bowl.  I debated and debated what to do with that.  So, I came up with filling it, but not with natural dust or coffee grounds but crushed powder turquoise!  And, I think it looks just right.  There is another worm hole almost opposite of it, but I thought that might be too much so I left it alone.  And, let’s not forget the natural colors of pecan being as beautiful as they are without any help.  The diameter is 6 ¼” with a height of 2 ½”.  The depth is 1 ¼” with the volume measuring just a bit over 1 cup.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  The finishing was done with shellac with some lemon oil wax mixed in.  Using this combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  16Jun20  BLP254  $30.00 and $4.00 S&H  Shipping price listed is for Continental United States only.  Other areas contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

I don’t think anyone is going to argue that this is a wonderful looking bowl that will look good as a display centerpiece.  Just imagine this bowl sitting on your dining table full of fruits and nuts and other tasty treats.  Being white oak, it does have a lot of odd and end cracks in it.  That just adds to the rustic appeal of the bowl.  There is a real interesting crack where there was a burl that I reinforced with clear glue and natural dust.  I felt that just needed to stay!  The diameter is 9” with the base diameter being 3 ½”.  The height is 4 ½” with a depth of 2 ½”.  The bowl does hold ½ gallon measured to the brim.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then the finishing was done with shellac and a bit of walnut oil based wax.  Using these ingredients gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish.  7Jun20  BLWO24  $50.00 and $7.00 S&H  Shipping price listed is for Continental United States only.  Other areas contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

First of all, the spalting in this bowl is really fabulous.  And I had not a thing to do with it.  That is all thanks to Mamma Nature.  Along with some fine color and grain patterns this bowl is super nice.  I am responsible for the shaping of the bowl but that is all.  This bowl is really just right for munchies such as your favorite nuts and candies.  Of course you might want to use it as a catch all bowl for keys and change.  The bowl is 7 1/4" in diameter, 4 1/4" high, and has a depth of 2 1/2".  Measuring the volume it came to 3 cups.  The wood was sealed with a couple of coats of food grade walnut oil.  The finishing was done with multiple coats (I lost track) of walnut oil based wax.  Using these materials gives the bowl a nice long lasting natural finish.  Totally renewable with regular olive oil if the wood gets a bit dry.  23Feb20 BLHB80 $35.00 and $6.00 S&H.  Shipping price listed is for Continental United States only.  Other areas contact me with zip code for shipping costs.

Gracious Cedar Elm Pedestal Bowl

This is the first piece of cedar elm that I have turned in quite some time.  A lot of folks say they have never heard of the wood, but it is quite prevalent in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and a few other states.  It is also known as Texas Elm.  This bowl has some natural defects in it that I felt needed to stay for rustic appearance.  You will find some cracks that I reinforced with clear glue and natural dust and some blemishes in the wood.  The bowl does hold liquids to the amount of 3 cups.  The diameter is 6 ¾” with a height of 3” and a depth of 2 inches.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture.  This gives the bowl a nice hard natural finish that you may use with confidence.    13May19  BLCE6  $30.00  Free shipping within Continental United States.

Without any discussion, I think all will look at this bowl and agree that it is delightful!  With the grain patterns that naturally come with White Oak, along with the coloring make this a bowl that will work with pretty much any décor.  You can just picture this bowl sitting on your table full of nuts and other tasty treats.  For it’s size I think with it holding 3 cups is really handy.  The diameter is 7 ¾” with a height of 2 3/4”.  The depth comes to 1 ½”.  After sanding the wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil.  Then it was finished with a mixture of walnut oil and shellac a bit heavy on the shellac.  This bowl is not meant to hold liquids.  It may or may not but just keep in mind that was not the intent of the turner.  One of a kind so don’t snooze on this.  BLWO14  5Oct18  $31.50  Free Shipping Within the Continental United States

Splendiferous Pecan Centerpiece Bowl

Some may be wondering where in the world did I come up with the word splendiferous from.  Well, I really don’t know but it does sound good, doesn’t it?  This fine looking bowl will look absolutely great sitting on anybody’s table as a centerpiece.  That is one of the really nice things about the natural color of pecan wood.  It pretty much fits in anywhere.  You will find the makings of a knot hole in the center of the bottom but not to worry, it does not go all the way through.  This bowl held 6 cups of water just fine.  The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and then finished with a walnut oil based wax.  I wanted this bowl to have a more natural satin sheen to it and I think that was accomplished.  Using the combination that was used here gives the bowl a nice hard natural finish.  The bowl measures 10 ¼”, the height is 3” and the depth is 2”.  26Mar18  BLP185  $40.00 and $14.00 S&H
