The history of Ebony being used in carved furniture can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians.We have created a similar rich lustrous look on our wooden salad bowl set by using a process called “Ebonizing”. The ebonizing solution is made from two common products, vinegar and steel wool. The steel wool is soaked overnight in a plastic container filled with vinegar, creating an “iron solution”. When this solution is applied to the bowl, it reacts immediately turning the Cherry into a rich black color. Ebonizing is a safe, easy way to create beautiful bowls with originality and character.
These spectacular solid Cherry wooden bowls our turned by the craftsmen at the Holland Bowl Mill, one of the last commercial wood bowl mills in production in the United States.
