Curly Mesquite Bowl
While this isn't the largest bowl I've turned, it's definitely one of my favorites...but I might say that about any mesquite with curly figure because it's not something you see every day. I left sapwood at the base of the bowl--a little peeks through to the inside of the bottom of the bowl. I really like the contrast between the light and dark color of the heart and sapwood.
Dimensions: 7 3/4" round x 2 3/4" deep.
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.
