This calibash style bowl is turned from a spectacularly spalted piece of hard maple (Acer saccharum). The bowl features an inward sloping rim and slight undercut that provides a natural hand-hold. the bowl also features a base that is wide enough to provide stability without detracting from the overall form of the bowl. Finished with a food-safe walnut oil finish that really pops the figure while still providing that 'in-the-wood' feel and protection, this bowl is ready to go to work in your kitchen. An heirloom quality bowl that will be in your family for generations.
