Purpleheart Goblets

Not exactly bowls...but they work on this page. This matching set of purpleheart goblets was made as a gift for a wedding shower. They're small because solid purpleheart is only available in thicknesses up to 2" thick - 6" high total. But the wood makes them awesome, and as my MIL put it, it's nice to have wood goblets with you because you don't have to worry about them shattering in your luggage...

Purpleheart, also sometimes called amaranth or violet wood, comes from several species of tropical trees native to Central and South America. The heartwood is a light purple when cut, and darkens upon exposure to sunlight, reaching first a darker purple and eventually a brown with a purple cast. It is hard and strong, and takes attention when turning, requiring sharp tools, gentle cuts, and a LOT of sanding.

The finish is mineral oil and beeswax, and is replenished by rubbing in more mineral oil, and won't change the flavor of your drink.

Sold individually for $40 at this size, the set is $70.00
