Looking at this bowl makes me think back to the saloons in the west back in the 1800’s. The saloons were in the habit of having either salted peanuts or potato chips in bowls on the bar for the paying customers. From what I have read both were loaded with salt for two reasons. First is the salt was used to help preserve the goodies and also the salt made the customers thirstier so they drank more. What a concept! I just picture a bowl like this used for that. This bowl has the usual characteristics I find in this wood. Minor cracks throughout and some beautiful warm coloring. This bowl does not hold liquids. You may put whatever else you desire in it as long as it is more of a solid. Like nuts, candy, fruits, and even popcorn. Lots of uses for a bowl like this. The diameter is 8 ½” with a height of 3” and a depth of 2 ¼”. The volume measured to be 4 cups. The wood was sealed with food grade walnut oil and finished with a walnut oil/shellac mixture. This combination gives the bowl a nice hard long lasting natural finish. 6Mar19 BLWO18 Shipping cost listed for within Continental United States only.

The work on my little salt container is amazing - I am a chef and this is my fourth salt box for my grey salt - and it is my favorite so far

This is another beautiful bowl from Mr. Hoskins. The grain in the white oak is so pretty, I almost hate to fill it. But it is perfect for a variety of nuts for Christmas. So it will serve our nuts for Christmas. Thank you.

This is a wonderful small bowl with a round rim on the bottom, so it sets up perfectly to display its contents. It could hold anything, but for now it has candy in it that won’t last long.

I now have 3 gorgeous bowls from Dave- one trench bowl, one pedestal, and this lovely cedar bowl. His work is impeccable! He also is so willing to take the time in communicating to ensure that his customers are completely satisfied with the finished product. His is my favorite Etsy shop. I will definitely purchase more from him in the future. You cannot go wrong with Dave!
