Large Oval 'Checker' Fruit Bowl

Newly listed in my Folksy shop is this huge fruit bowl. I've been playing around with the orientation of the layers of plywood with this one and am very pleased with the results.

The next bowl will have a 'herring bone' pattern in one layer  :)

23.5" Long x 12" Wide x 3.25" High         Weight 1.7kg

This Large Oval fruit bowl has been carved from four layers of plywood laminated together, one layer has been sliced then stood on edge in a checker pattern near the top of the bowl to create an eye catching effect before lamination.

Finished with four coats of Tung and Linseed oil mix, to a high gloss.

This bowl is 'food safe' due to the natural oils used to finish and extremely heat resistant.
A very unusual 'talking point' as a table display on a larger dinning table or side board.
