This simple bowl is turned from a nice piece of wood that was once a large root from a cherry tree black cherry (Prunus seritonia). Being root wood, it has considerable character and visual interest. The simple, unadorned form really lets the wood speak for itself. This bowl features a simple in-turned rim with a subtle reverse cove on the outside that provides the perfect hand-hold when you pick it up. The bottom has been turned and decorated with a several concentric rings that provide a little surprise when the bowl is handled and show that it was turned and finished with as much attention to detail as the rest of the bowl. Finished with a food safe, linseed oil and buffed to a warm, pleasant sheet, the appearance and feel of this bowl will only get better with time. This bowl is perfect for snacks, popcorn or fruit and is ready to go to work in your kitchen.
