This shallow bowl is made of Black Walnut and has dark heartwood, light sapwood, and some of the weathered wood from when it was on a firewood pile. This piece had a hole in it where a knot had formed. The hole was enlarged and shaped to form the bowl and another piece was made into the bottom of the bowl. There is a lot of grain character due to the growth of the knot.
The bowl is an ellipse with the rim measuring 10"x 8" (the bottom of the bowl is 4"x3"). The overall height is 2" with the bowl being about 1" deep at its center.
It has a Danish Oil finish.
It weighs a little under 2 lbs.*
*Because of its weight this bowl is expensive to ship. The shipping has been set at the cost of Indiana to California. A refund will be made for the shipping in excess of actual postage for locations closer.
