Handcrafted Potpourri Canary & Padauk Segmented Wooden Bowl w/ Antique Pewter Humming Bird Lid
This is Canary Wood & Padauk Segmented Wooden Potpourri Bowl is made with wood purchased from Barzil & the Canary Isands. Segmented turning 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..
This Canary wood pieces can be almost rainbow colored—with dark red streaks, along with the natural orange, yellow, and brown coloration. Canary wood is said to have good acoustic properties and is a hardwood that will turn darker as it ages.
This Padauk came from Brazil and it is a coarse-grained heartwood varies in color from a lustrous purple-red to orange-red. With age and exposure to sunlight, it turns deep maroon. Padauk wood features a pronounced ribbon stripe and is stronger than oak. The wood sands easily to a glass-smooth finish.
