This walnut nut bowl measures 9 1/2” in diameter by 3 1/4” high. This is the last of my stock from North Carolina that was rescued from a fire pile in a friend’s back yard. The bowl has a beautiful grain pattern and is finished with lacquer and wax.

It is a little thick, about 3/4” at its thinnest. It is hollowed to about 2 1/4” deep. I viewed it as a centerpiece for a table and not something to be passed around. However, I know nothing about the person that ordered it, so I probably projected my preference in a nutbowl onto the final product. I hope they like it.

Well, a little thick is a lot better than going thru the bottom ! I am sure that’s been done a few times !
