Hand Crafted Wooden Bowls
Our modern style wooden bowls can be used as a chips bowl, wooden salad bowl or even a wooden fruit bowl. These unique wooden bowls are built from local trees that have fallen and are free from cracks. The logs are cut with a chainsaw into bowl blanks then rough turned on a wooden lathe slightly oversized close to the final shape then left to dry from 6 months to over a year depending on the species of wood and size of bowl. Once completely dry the rough turned bowls are then put back on the lathe again for a second time and machined to their final shape then sanded and coated with food safe oils.
There are basically 2 different shapes "forms" of our wooden bowls that we produce at My Wooden Bowl one is an open form bowl and other is a closed form bowl. The open form bowls are easier to craft and we can produce multiple bowls from the same bowl blank using a bowl coring system. The closed form bowl is more challenging to machine and we can only get one wooden bowl from one bowl blank.
