Large Spalted Burl Horse Chestnut Wood Turned Bowl Featuring Bark Inclusions.


Large Spalted Burl Horse Chestnut Wood Turned Bowl featuring Bark Inclusion. 

This Irish Horse Chestnut Burl Bowl, is made with timber sourced from Co Carlow.

This highly figured burl Horse Chestnut is fabulous to work with, the swirls of the knots and buds are mesmerising. It features some of natural voids which we believe only enhances this piece. 

This piece was allowed to air dry in 2018 before being brought into our workshop in 2019 . 

We started this project on the lathe to keep as much of the natural shape of the burl in this piece. This amazing piece was wet turned before allowing more time to dry naturally. 

This bowl had its final design and shaped in 2020 with a second turn on the lathe. 

This would make a perfect salad bowl or fruit bowl. 

We use a food safe Danish Oil when completing this project.
