Ambrosia Maple Bowl - Green-turned

This ambrosia maple wood bowl measures 8" diameter and 2" high. It was made for an order, and the wood was shipped after the order was placed. There is never any guarantee as to the moisture content of bowl blanks when ordered this way, and it turns out this one was still pretty green. This means that as it dries over the next month or two it will elongate slightly and get a really cool, natural, organic shape to it. It was already a gorgeous piece of wood, and I think it will only get better.
Ambrosia maple is one of my favorite woods to work with. It's regular maple, left moist and warm and exposed to the elements after the tree dies, so that the ambrosia beetle can attack the tree. The beetle bores into the tree, bringing ambrosia fungus spores with it. The fungus attacks and stains the tree and then the beetle can eat the fungus as it reporduces. The net result: Beautifully figured wood. Price as shown: $40.00

Purpleheart Bowl - Oh, and Don't Forget the Bloodwood, Maple, and Walnut

This set was made for a custom order. A customer, originally from Guyana where the people are known for their craftsmanship with purpleheart, was looking for a purpleheart bowl. her Father had promised her one but had passed away before he could get it for her. She had google-searched for a purpleheart bowl, and saw my segmented bowls. She wanted a fuller shape, but the same woods. To emphasize purpleheart, each has a purpleheart base whereas the other set alternates.
The large bowl is 6" high and 10" in diameter. The smaller bowl is 3" high and 8" in diameter.

Price for the set: $450.00

Aromatic Cedar Bowl

This hand-turned wood bowl is made from Aromatic Cedar. Since you don't want to use cedar for food (makes your food taste like a tree) I thought it would be fun to use a higher gloss finish than the food-safe mineral oil and beeswax I normally use. This has a shellac and carnuba wax based finish that gives it added beauty - not that it is lacking in beauty with the beautiful grain and color of the cedar. Aromatic Cedar is popular for boxes and chests due to its nice fragrance, which also repells moths. The wood has dramaitc grain, and finishes very nicely, polishing to a mild sheen without sandpaper if you use your tools right when turning a project.

This bowl is 6" in diamter and 2" high. Cedar is less expensive than a lot of fancy bowl materials, so it's not a lot of money - this bowl or one like it can be ordered for about $25.00. Click here to buy this item

Eucalyptus Burl Bowl

I really like how this bowl turned out. Hand-turned from eucalyptus burl, this wood bowl looks as cool upside-down as right-side up. The wood grain has such cool patterns and swirls - figure almost as nice as my wife's. Just kidding baby. Anyway, Eucalyptus is an Australian wood, very popular among Australian woodturners, and for good reason. It looks awesome when it's turned and it finishes up nicely, to a semi gloss sheen from sanding with no finish applied. The bowl shown, as with all my bowls, is intended to be used and is finished with mineral oil and beeswax for a food-safe finish that can be refreshed with any food-safe oil.

This bowl is 5-1/4" diameter and 1-3/4" high, available for $30.00. Click here to buy this item
