Made from a section of timber destined for the firewood pile. I shiver with the thought of all the good timber cut up for firewood. The tree was taken down as it was becoming unsafe and close to a dwelling, the owner had already had a near miss with a 10" diameter branch.

This bowl came from a section lower on the tree and was 28" in diameter 14 feet up the tree ! It was a big tree and would have demolished the farm house had it fallen down.
Coated with a several coats of a food safe finish which dries clear and provides protection for use, the bowl is one of a number made from the section of timber. No two the same as I allow each bowl and timber to come together rather than engineer the bowls and make the timber fit ! The contrasting colours and compression figure in the sides of the bowl make these a great item to hold and turn over as you see new shapes and colours on the surface.
The bowls are turned while the timber is fresh and allowed to air dry and distort out of round to add a little extra something not found on the high street in production run wooden bowls.
14" across by 8 " deep

The second image shows the last of the batch of Poplar wood as a large salad bowl, it was made for a lady that contacted me via this page whilst she was working an dliving in Brussels - a pleasure to work with over the internet via email.
