17-inch Colonial Hardwood Bowl
It's a REALLY BIG bowl! At
17" across and 5-1/2" tall, this bowl is ready to handle even the
largest potato salads! Available in American Beech, Black Walnut, and Cherry wood.
It's the perfect addition to our regular line of Individual, Small, Medium and Large Colonial Bowls
How is the bowl made? There is a woodworking shop where, using machines over a
100 years old, craftspeople cut these historic wooden bowls
from massive blocks of hardwoods. Gnarled hands load the
blocks onto the spinning lathes and guide the specially
shaped knives so that bowl after bowl in ever increasing
sizes is wrested from the heart of the tree. For many
years we have been proud to retail bowls such as these
in our stores and now we are offering them on our website.
Because they come straight from the tree they have all the
individuality so often sawn out or selected out. The darker
wood you see in a bowl is the old heartwood and the lighter
is the sapwood which is to the outside of the tree. If you
are looking for a plastic uniformity, don't bother with
these bowls. These wooden bowls are nature in true display.
After the bowls are cut to shape they are very carefully
dried, then sanded smooth and when they arrive to us we
give them a special oil finish. The bowls are not truly
round but become somewhat elliptical as they dry.
