A simply beautiful wooden salad bowl for sale can be used for serving a wide array of snacks, fruits or salads but with a special twist. It is hand-made of Asersus wood, native to Aswan and Kom Ombo in Upper Egypt. Asersus trees have very distinct features with the height of the tree being around 25 cm and the widest area about 180 cm. Asersus wood is characterized by its durability, beautiful colors and flexibility in transforming the raw wood into gorgeous, perfectly-smooth products that will last a lifetime.
This raw, all-natural bowl is made manually. The process is timely and arduous but in the end, you’re left with a stunning product. First, the freshly-cut trunks are left between two to four years to dry completely. Then, the dried out trunk and branches are trimmed by hand carefully until smooth. The trunk is then cut into slices of varying thickness and shaped into whatever the handicraftsmen desires to make. The final product is then painted with a glossy paint for a shiny finish and protection.
Before the first use, wash the bowl well with water and dish soap. To keep the bowl shiny and smooth, clean it with a piece of cotton and lemon essential oil.
