Wood Flavor: Silver Maple

Condition: New

Interesting Characteristics:
• This bowl was cut from a crotch where the sawyer cut off the limb very close to the crotch. I left the chainsaw texture on the edge of the bowl.
• Heartwood is a tan / light pink color. This bowl came from the same tree as the other pink hued maple bowls. I think the closer the bowl grew to the roots, the more pink/purple is got.
• Curly grain can be found through the bottom of the bowl.
• Natural bark edge found on rim.
• Sapwood is a pale yellow / light colored grain right under the bark.

Dimensions: The bowl is 12 inches wide. It is 3 ½ inches tall. The image of the golf ball in the bowl should help give you an idea of the size of the bowl.

Bowl’s weight: 1 pound 8 oz

Finish:
• Wipe on Polyurethane (shiny, durable, non-food grade finish). Other turners use a food grade finish on their bowls but I love the color and depth of grain that polyurethane gives wood. You can’t eat soup out of my bowls, but my bowl’s finish will be as durable as your kitchen table’s finish. Polyurethane and wax make the bowl extremely smooth.
• Buffed with 3 kinds of wax

Uses:
• Dining table centerpiece
• Infant photo prop
• Coin or keys holder
• Wrapped candy
• Shelled nuts
• Potpourri
• Fruit

Care of Bowl: Wipe it with a damp cloth, do not submerse in water. Do not use furniture polish on the bowl, it will dissolve the wax finish.

Story of where the wood for the bowl came from: This tree grew in Nashotah, Wisconsin at a seminary. It grew in front of the house where the bishop who founded the seminary lived when he founded the seminary in 1842.

All of my bowls are signed and dated on the bottom.
