Bowl turned from Cherry, finished for use with food
February 10, 2024
Bowl turned from cherry [Prunus serotina]. Cherry is a wonderful, warm American hardwood, long used in turning, furniture-making and other woodworking. It darkens considerably with age, to a rich reddish brown. This turning has been allowed to darken for two years, producing just that rich reddish brown.
The bowl has been finished for use with food, and should be wiped clean after use with a damp sponge. An occasional wiping with a vegetable oil will maintain its appearance (I recommend Walnut Oil…do not use Olive Oil, as it may become rancid).
