My Wooden Bowls

Thanks to blogland, I have many new obsessions.  And one of these obsessions are wooden bowls.

You may have noticed my new wooden bowl on my Killer Coffee Table Post.

I picked it up at an estate sale last week for $42.

It was an awesome estate sale, and I was standing in line at the end of the driveway to get in the door when they opened.

I spotted this bowl literally when I first walked in the door.  I’m so glad it was there, because I bet most people walked right by trying to rush inside to see what treasures were inside (and trust me there were plenty).

My daughter asked “You’re going to pay $42 for a bowl?”  You bet I am, and that was before I turned it over to see the price the owner paid for it.  Wow…$105 for a European Wood Bowl.

Over the winter, I picked up this wooden bowl from a fellow vendor at Liberty Belle.

It’s large and deep and I think I paid $37 for it.

Just like the first bowl, this one is unique.

This last bowl I picked up a couple of months ago at a garage sale for $10.

It sits a little wonky…I need to find some type of base to make it more stable.  But this is the only one I actually serve food out of.  Because it is so wide and shallow, it is the perfect vessel for serving fruit.

I have several more round wooden bowls that I use for food service as well, but they just aren’t as interesting as the ones I have scored this year.

  3. Don’t you like new bowls? I make wooden bowls and the first one looks as if it was turned. The others look carved. The turned one certainly looks old, but perhaps needs some TLC! You might prefer to keep it as it is, but there is an article on wood care and re-finishing bowls on my bowl pages
