Rustic Oak Bowl

This gorgeous oak bowl I carved from an ancient English Oak I cleared from a village just a few miles from my workshop. Rough carved over 18 months ago and then left to 'season' before the final shaping. The bowl was sanded down the grades to a 180 grit paper, then 'saturated' six times with pure Tung oil.


The finished result is absolutely stunning with a myriad of patterns for the eye to feast on, a heavy weight chunky rustic bowl, slightly elliptical with a medieval non-symmetrical feel.

13" Long x 10.5" Wide x 5" High (3" deep inside)    2.5 Kilograms



It's farm house table, It's country cottage, It's hobbit home. I'm so impressed with this one I can't bear to part with it .....well .....not unless I get a very good offer  :)

  1. Beautiful bowl! A really awe-ispiring piece. But I'd hang on to it if I were you David, at least till you've finished the set!
