Destined for the wood stove, Ed recognized the beauty in this piece of wood and saved it.  It went through various stages of being worked and drying, close to a year along with wood from other species of trees.  This bowl is 7 inches across and 3 inches deep, ready for your soup or salad.  And when it's not being used, it can be admired for the work of art that it is.

These are hand-made wooden bowls, created one at a time from local trees, in Ed Hoovler's Monson workshop. From the time a tree is identified as a possible source of interesting, useful, well-crafted bowls to the end of the finishing and buffing process, nearly a year passes. The wood is shaped, set off to dry for 6+ months, given its final shape, hand-sanded in a 10-step procedure, finished in a 6-step technique and, finally, buffed in three-step operation. Theses bowls are meant to be used and are easy to maintain. Wash in warm soap and water, then dry with a soft cloth. Do not soak and do not use in a microwave. When the finish becomes dull over the course of time, renew with a liberal hand application of mineral oil, allow to sit for 30 minutes, then polish with a soft cloth.
