Purpleheart Hand-Turned SQUARE Wood Bowl

This square bowl is made from Purpleheart, hand-turned with a unique look that always draws attention. When people ask how I made it, I tell them I started with a flat piece of wood, punched out the middle, and then bent down the corners. OK maybe it's not that funny, but it looks really cool. Finished with mineral oil and beeswax so it's decorative AND functional.

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 patient sanding.

This was actually made live at the Ogden Farmers Market. Price for similar bowl: $35.00.
