Catalpa fruit bowl

Two catalpa bowls.  The timber for these bowls comes from Penn Yan, in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State.  The catalpa tree has large, heart-shaped leaves and seed pods from 8 to 20 inches in length.  

The timber is relatively soft yet stable.  The high-contrast grain lends a bit of flair to these bowls which can be used for snacks, fruit nuts and other food items.  They can also hold keys, yarn, or general knick-knacks.  Each will also make a much-appreciated gift.

The first bowl (#21030) measures 8-1/4" by 2-1/4", while the second bowl (#22238), with the black color inlaid into the rim, measures 11" by 2-3/4".

They are hand-finished with non-toxic linseed oil and beeswax which give them a sheen and lustre as well as a very smooth touch.

 Prices: $50 for the bowl without the black rim (SKU 21030); $75 for the bowl with the black rim (SKU 22238); $115 for the pair.  Prices include shipping within the USA.
