Box Elder Salad Bowl


Box Elder Salad Bowl

Handmade wood turned Red Box Elder salad bowl with beautiful grain and incredible red flame markings. The red color streaks are created by the Box Elder Beetle when he infests a maple tree. His cousin, the Ambrosia Beetle leaves brown streaks in the wood. The little black dots are holes where these buggers enter and exit the wood leaving their artwork behind while unfortunately damaging the health of the tree.  You can check out other Wooden bowls you may like especially this Ambrosia Bowl

Care for your bowl

  • Keep out of direct sunlight
  • Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
  • Do not wash with water, if necessary use only a damp cloth
  • Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster.  I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.


I design all the items on this website at my studio in Montvale, NJ USA.  I never sell items from other sources.
