Hand-Made Wooden Bowls
Spalted Maple Bowl
This beautiful 8" diameter bowl was turned from spalted maple - pulled from the firewood pile.
As a maple log ages in the outdoors, it often becomes affected by various fungi, producing the characteristic streaking. In this case, it produced the marvelous streaks of red and shades of browns.
All my bowls are finished with a food-safe shellac-oil combination, and buffed to a soft luster.
Sugar Maple Heartwood Bowl
This small maple bowl is only 4" in diameter. The bold streak through it comes from the hardened heart wood of the sugar maple, from which it was turned.
Hand Hewn Cherry Bowls
This set of bowls were all hand hewn from American cherry. They range in size from 3" in diameter to 5" inches long for the oblong designs.
They are made from off-cuts (scraps) left over from furniture construction. I make them entirely by hand with a variety of tools - hand saws, gouges, chisels, planes and scrapers - and finish them with a very thorough sanding regimen and a food-safe shellac-oil coating.
Maple Wooden Candy Bowl
This small 4" diameter sugar maple bowl fits in the hands nicely. Its smooth, curved sides give one a calming feeling when held.
It also is an awesome bowl to scoop out M&M candies. They slide effortlessly up the smooth, curved interior sides! : )
