Handcrafted Potpourri Australian Gumwood Segmented Wooden Bowl w/ Antique Pewter Humming Bird Lid
This is Australian Gumwood segmented wooden Potpourri Bowl is made with wood purchased from an Amish sawmill in AR. It has thirty three pieces of Australian Gumwood glued together. This provides two benefits over turning a bowl from a solid blank. First, there’s less waste of wood because the blank will already be hollow. Second, when turning, you’re nearly always cutting with the grain of the wood, rather than across it. The exception being the disk at the bottom. This reduces tearing, wear on the tools, and makes mounds of those shaving ribbons that are so satisfying to watch fountain off the work-piece and pile up on the floor..
A Australian Gumwood – hand tuned, one-of-a-kind bowl suitable for offerings, display, dried herbs etc . . . Finish is satin hand rubbed and food safe.
This bowl was hand crafted and turned on my wood lathe.
Remember there is only one of this bowl making it a unique. No two pieces are the same. Each will have different grain patterns and colors.
Dimensions: Diameter 5 1/4 inches by 3 1/2 tall.
