This large olive wood salad bowl is a masterpiece.
The craftsman Angel cuts no corners - this bowl is made from one block of olive wood - not a laminate. It is hard to find a perfect piece of olive wood this large, but the result is a beautifully grained piece that will not crack over time - as do laminated olive wood bowls. He guarantees it to be free of any flaws, cracks. This will be your best salad bowl you have ever used - and you will enjoy it for years.
Since classical times olive wood has been one of the most prized mediums for carving; because when fashioned by an artisan this hardwood provides a smooth, silky finish. These are prize winning olive wood products that we have at La Tienda. They are personal creations of Angel, from the Province of Navarra.
Angel draws upon 27 years of experience as he selects just the right block of aged olive wood. The block he selects is absolutely flawless - with no chance of cracking. He never cuts corners by using laminates, which are prone to splitting.
He fashions the aged olive wood by cutting, hollowing, turning, and sanding the ancient wood. He sets aside the final product for at least two months so that he can be sure that the wood in the hand fashioned product is completely dry. Finally Angel applies a natural sunflower coating. Angel guarantees any of his hand carved creations for five years.
