Ebonized Cherry Salad Set
These beautiful solid cherry bowls are turned by the craftsmen at the Holland Bowl Mill, which is one of the last commercial wooden bowl mills in the United States. A unique "Michigan-made" gift for weddings, housewarmings, birthdays and holidays!
The history of ebony being used in carved furniture can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians. Holland Bowl Mill creates a similar rich lustrous look on this wooden salad bowl set by using a process called “Ebonizing”. A solution is made from two common products, vinegar and steel wool. The steel wool is soaked overnight in a container filled with vinegar, creating an “iron solution”. When this solution is applied to the bowl, it reacts immediately turning the cherry into a rich black color. Ebonizing is a safe, easy way to create beautiful bowls with originality and character.
Bowls are hand rubbed with food safe bees oil wood conditioner. Wood grain will vary. Hand wash only.
Set includes a 12" bowl with serving set and 4 - 7" bowls.
