In the late 1800's a popular style came into vogue among
Scottish woodturners in which they created their project
blanks from alternating blocks of light and dark woods. In
our Scottish-American Bowl we pay respects to that
tradition. The warm acceptance with which his
has been received suggested to designer and woodturner
John McLeod that there was an obvious opportunity
to salute his own Scottish American experience. Now, which
woods to use? Our native Vermont Yellow Birch was first
choice for the light wood. What about the dark wood?
Scotland, the purple of the heather, got it! Purpleheart!
What a combination! It is all that was hoped for. A bowl
in the American Bowl style.
A construction from byegone
days of Scottish craftsmanship. The result is a bright,
vibrant, functional designed piece in keeping with our
modern times. Use for salad, fruit, pot pourri or just as
a piece on display. The Scottish-American Bowl has our
specially formulated hand rubbed finish to protect it
for generations. It is sized as the
and is 14-1/2" across the top and 4-1/2" high. Matching
Individual salad bowls are available upon special request,
