Wood Flavor: Cherry

Condition: New

Interesting Characteristics:
• This bowl has a limb growing out of the edge of the bowl. This produced extra curly figure in the area around the limb
• A stretch mark runs down the center of the bowl which was caused by 2 limbs growing apart
• Cherry heartwood is photo reactive to sunlight. It will darken with exposure to the sun. Leave this bowl empty for a couple of months before putting items in this bowl.
• This old tree has some dead areas in it. Most of the edge of this bowl has sapwood and bark. One area on the side is missing sapwood and bark because it was part of a dead streak that ran up the tree.
• Woodpecker damage can be found in the grain of the bowl. Woodpecker damage will look like a dark streak.

Dimensions: The bowl is 16 x 12 ¾ inches wide. It is 5 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: 3 pounds 14 oz

• 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

• Christmas or wedding present
• Table centerpiece
• A piece of visual art
• Coin or keys holder
• Wrapped candy
• 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 near my parent’s cabin near Richland Center, Wisconsin. This tree was old for a cherry and had 2 dead streaks running up the trunk. I dropped it before it fell on its own. The tree was lots of woodpecker damage. Cherry smells very fruity when it is turned.

The bowl was dried in my kiln so it is very dry. Usually, air drying my turnings takes 8 months. The kiln (an easy bake oven using a fridge and a light bulb) allows me to speed up my process to about 4-5 weeks.

To see my latest turnings, find me on facebook under Greenwood turnings.

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