This beautiful, handmade Black Walnut shallow bowl features amazing grain and shines in natural light. The wood for this bowl came from a local source here in Central Illinois.
I turned this bowl and finished it while still "green" or wet and contained a fair amount of moisture in the wood. Once the bowl dried, it took on an oval shape. This is a great way to showcase the wood movement and see what the wood can transform itself into when drying naturally.
Bowl measures 9" by 2".
Finished with Beeswax and mineral oil. NOT suitable for dishwashers or submersion in water. Wipe clean and towel dry immediately.
This would make a great table display or mantle piece!
