Wood Flavor: Silver Maple

Condition: New

Interesting Characteristics:
• Darker grained stretch mark runs through the bottom of the bowl
• Natural bark edge runs around the rim
• Small gray spots caused by mold during drying process
• Left side of bowl has tan heartwood from a limb
• Heart shape of bowl comes from where 2 limbs split from a branch

Dimensions: The bowl is 15 ¾ x 14 inches wide. It is 4 ¾ inches at its tallest edge. The image of the golf ball in the bowl should help give you an idea of the size of the bowl.

Bowl’s weight: 2 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:
• Conference table centerpiece
• Dining table centerpiece
• 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 bowl grew in Waukesha, Wisconsin. It was planted in 1890, around the same time as the house that sits on the property. The wood for the tree was being given away and when I arrived to get some wood, another gentleman was rolling large logs onto his trailer. I quickly collected a few burls, bumps and crotches before they were hauled away for firewood.

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