This is a male pistachio bowl I made for my friends wife. It was made from a blank he bought at the Dead Tree Salvage saw mill.

It is 8” x 2 1/2” high and finished with Danish oil.

Cheers, Jim

Nice gift but I don’t think those are Pistachio’s in the bowl! LOL! More beautiful grain and a lovely model to show off your fine work!

Gorgeous!

I gotta ask- what’s the difference between a male and female pistachio bowl ;^)

Nice bowl and would have been appreciated by your friend. Same question as Lew, is there a visible difference?

Pistaccio wood looks also pretty interesting. I like clean lines on this one.

Really good Jim.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Makes you wish we had pistachio trees growing here. Great job centering the grain on the bowl.
