everything you need to know before ordering your custom piece
Choosing the Wood
When you are choosing what type of wood you’d like for your custom piece there are a few factors to keep in mind. Firstly cost, if you are trying to keep your cost down I’d recommend Pine Wood. There are a few type of Pine Wood, some cheaper then others. If you’d like your piece to last longer then I recommend splurging and getting hardwood, hardwoods will be more money but they will last longer in the long run. When choosing a hardwood there are lots of options, like anything some will be cheaper then others, some work better outdoors then others, you also want to keep in mind what the rest of your house looks like, you don’t want your piece to clash with the rest of the room.
Can I Use This Bowl For Food?
Some bowls I use food safe finish when I finish the bowl making it 100% food safe. While other bowls I finish using a lauquer finish, these are not considered food safe. Now it is said that once a bowl has sat and cured for 30 days it is considered food safe.
*please do NOT eat from just any wooden bowl! Make sure you trust who you ordered from*
What Kind Of Maintenance Do I Need To Do With My Bowl?
Most bowls only require a quick wipe down with a dry cloth, how easy is that?! You can always hand wash with mild soap and air dry your bowls as well. If you are hand washing your wooden bowl I recommend using some of my Bee Oil, apply with a paper towel and let it sit for 15 minutes then wipe the excess off with a new towel. (If you do not have bee oil you can use any type of food safe oil, Home Depot and Lowes carry butcher block oil)
