Here’s a Red Oak Celebration Bowl that we were working on last week, all hand rubbed and shined up with our beeswax finish! It is 33cm (13″) by 9.5cm (3.75″) and features a branded motif circling it’s deep red stained rim, accenting the ruddy grain.
The Oak for this bowl was harvested from the Hants County area of Nova Scotia.
Here are a couple of “work in progress” photos, the first one showing the bowl just after our unique style of branding was applied to around both the inside and outside of the rim:
The stain comes next… Funny how each piece talks to you… we were planning on adding more branded accents but once the first round of the individual ‘Greek key’ style brand was burnt in, the bowl said, “That’s enough!”. We agreed. 🙂
Here’s a closeup of the completed rim of the Red Oak Celebration Bowl bowl showing clearly how the brand and the stain complements the natural colour and grain of the beautiful wood:
Here, of course, is the completed Red Oak bowl:
