Y Knot Salt Bowl Honeylocust 5"
Look up sketches of the famous Gettysburg address, and you will see a lone Honey Locust near Abraham Lincoln. The famous honey locust sits on a hilltop just 100 yards from where President Lincoln spoke after the battle of Gettysburg, a prominent and enduring symbol of freedom and the human spirit. Show your solidarity and display your beautiful Honey Locust Freedom Bowl in a place of pride and prominence! You will find information below about the various types of wood that Hugh uses for his products. The great majority of the wood is locally sourced, but sometimes Hugh uses exotics for accent pieces.
Caring for Your Bowl
Most importantly – please do not put in the dishwasher! The strong
detergents and high temperatures will damage handmade wood products.
To clean, simply wipe with a damp cloth or wash in warm, lightly soapy
water. Soak for less than 1 minute.
If you are using the items regularly, the oils in the food and on your hands
will constantly season the wood so you probably won’t need to re-apply any
oil to the finish. But if necessary, a LIGHT coat of walnut oil or butcher block
oil can be applied. Don’t use olive oil as it can go rancid if the item isn’t used
regularly. Some types of mineral oil can be used, but some varieties do not
dry well, leaving the surface feeling sticky.
