This list is for your choice of padauk, bubinga, or purple heart. Padauk: begins reddish orange when freshly cut, darkening significantly over time to a reddish/purple brown.
Purple heart: when freshly cut displays a purple brown. During the exhibition, the wood becomes a deeper eggplant violet.Bubinga: ranges from a pinkish red to a darker reddish brown with darker purple or black streaks. Frequently seen with a variety of figures, including: pommele, flame, waterfall, quilted, marbled, etc. Each bowl is handmade in rockland hand. The bowls are fifteen inches in diameter at the top rim, and six inches tall. They will easily accommodate 10-12 servings of side salad making them great for family gatherings while not being too big for everyday use. We also make salad tongs to match. They are listed in the utensils section of our shop. If you don't see available, I'm happy to make them on request. The photo with fruit inside is to show the volume of the bowls and includes; 3lbs of apples, 3lbs of oranges, 2 mangoes, a large bouquet of bananas, and dragon fruits. To get the fruit to show well, we had to space the lower layers so that everything wasn't sitting too low in the bowl.
Final: food-grade mineral oil and organic beeswax. Take care of your wooden bowls and other wooden kitchen utensils. Wooden kitchen items should be hand-washed with soap, hot water and a non-abrasive cloth or sponge.Never soak your wooden items, or leave them standing without water padding first. It is best to let them air-dry before storing them in cupboards or other confined areas. If the item is not as bright and vibrant as it once was, a quick wipe with a sure food oil wax finish will bring it back to its original dynamism. A light wiping with oil wax finish is all that is needed as your products come seasoned with several layers of our homemade mineral oil and beeswax blend.
If you have any questions, we would be more than happy to answer them. This item is made of wood.
