Maple Salad Bowl
This Stunning Maple Salad Bowl is rich in color from the heartwood growth that occurs near the center of the tree. The white sapwood is new growth growing close to the bark. This bowl shows unique contrasting features between the heartwood and sapwood. This wood bowl features a slight concave rim.
Maple is a common wood in the Northeast. The colors in this piece are extraordinary. They are rich and the wood turns beautifully. Handmade on a wood lathe this bowl features beautiful grain with tons of character. A bowl like this is a perfect centerpiece for your table. Picture a gorgeous bowl filled with apples and oranges on your kitchen table. This bowl is perfect for fruits or any other utilitarian need. My signature is on all my bowls on the base.

Care for Wood Bowls
Keep out of direct sunlight and minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
Do not wash with water, but if necessary use only a damp cloth. Soaking in water will raise the grain and ruin the finish requiring restoration to the original look.
Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster. I like beeswax or mineral oil for a quick and simple fix.
