Curly Maple Calabash Style Bowl

$70.00

This hand-turned maple bowl has gorgeous curly figure! This piece of timber was responsibly sourced from a tree that had already been felled in Tennessee, and was sent to me freshly-cut by a fellow woodturner. I rough turned this bowl while it was still green (wet with moisture), and I allowed it to acclimate to the arid desert environment for 8 weeks. After it had finished drying, I turned it to the final shape you see here.

I love the character and warmth in this bowl. You will, too.

Dimensions: 6 1/2" round x 3 3/4" deep

Price includes FREE shipping!

Maintenance and care: This bowl was finished with food-safe walnut oil. Clean with soap and water, and dry after each use. When the wood begins to look dry, simply apply mineral oil, walnut oil, or any food-grade oil of your choice. If the bowl begins to feel rough, a quick sanding with 400 grit sandpaper will smooth it out. This bowl was handmade and likes to be hand-washed. Please do NOT put in the dishwasher.
