A handcarved bowl made from wild cherry wood.
This bowl has been made from the trunk of a fallen Welsh cherry tree in the Scandinavian style.
13 inches in length, 7 inches wide and about 3 inches deep, it was carved with ax, adze and hook knives from the half trunk which gives the finished bowl a grand figuring of grain with contrasts between heart and sap woods.
Once completed, it was treated to multiple coats of hot culinary grade flaxseed oil which allows for deep penetration of the wood and, in this case, resulted in a pale buff to honey coloured finish. Over time it should darken to a deep brown. I left it free from any pattern carving or decoration as the fluted rim seemed to be all it needs.
Like every utensil I make, this is for use. Salads, rice, porridge or even soups if you are a true wood diner. But of course it would make an equally jolly fruit bowl or the like.
I've always been fond of the traditional Norwegian and Swedish designs for bowls so when a clean log of fallen Cherry Wood came my way it was an easy choice to set to work creating this piece. It is a bit more elaborate than the traditional dough bowls and ale bowls but that's my mark on the old established style in this case.
As with wooden spoons, it only needs rinsing, wiping and drying after use. Every now and then when dry, rub in a fresh coat of walnut or linseed oil to replenish the wood. If you intend it for dry use (fruit bowl or as a decorative piece) then it will take a beeswax polish and should come up bright.
