In the late 1800's a popular style came into vogue among Scottish woodturners in which they created their project blanks from alternating blocks of light and dark woods. In our Scottish-American Bowl we pay respects to that tradition. The warm acceptance with which his American Bowl has been received suggested to designer and woodturner John McLeod that there was an obvious opportunity to salute his own Scottish American experience. Now, which woods to use? Our native Vermont Yellow Birch was first choice for the light wood. What about the dark wood? Scotland, the purple of the heather, got it! Purpleheart! What a combination! It is all that was hoped for. A bowl in the American Bowl style. A construction from byegone days of Scottish craftsmanship. The result is a bright, vibrant, functional designed piece in keeping with our modern times. Use these wooden salad bowls nut just for salads but also for fruit, potpourri or just as a piece on display.
