This simple shallow calibash type bowl is turned from an interesting piece of hophornbeam (Ostrya virginiana). Hophornbeam is among the hardest, most durable North American hardwoods, and this piece features considerable figure and some sapwood to provide even more interest and character. The form itself is simple and understated, with an inward sloping and slightly undercut rim, this bowl just feels to handle. Finished with food safe linseed oil to bring out the figure, the appearance of this bowl will only get better with time. Perfect for serving side dishes at the dinner table or popcorn on movie night.
