Detailed Info about bowl
This bowl is from a wild cherry burl that grew on one side of a log. The burl used for this bowl is shown in an image above. The burl was sold to me and came from private land near Superior, WI. The base of the bowl was positioned near the straight grain part of the log to give a good depth to the bowl and a complete bark edge. The grain figuring of the burl is beautiful with bird’s eyes, curl and mottled patterns. The wood is spalted giving some green tones and dark patterns. The bark is spectacular with its dark red color and jagged edge. The shape of the bowl was carved to best show the grain figuring and the bark. The bowl was turned using handheld tools on a lathe from green wood, dried for several months, and sanded to 600 grit. The bowl was sealed with two coats of tung oil, hand sanded after each coat, and finished with a buffed thin coat of beeswax and walnut oil. This finish is considered food safe, although this bowl is best suited for artistic display. This bowl should last for hundreds of years and improve gracefully with age. This is a nicely colored and patterned wild cherry burl bowl that has a great appearance and feel. Cherry wood will darken as it ages giving it a beautiful rich look.
