With all the plastic, glass, and other materials that bowls are made out of these days, it can be easy to forget that once upon a time, nearly all bowls in use were made of wood. It is also easy to forget that bowls can be used in a multitude of ways, even some that go beyond kitchen duty. The beauty of custom hand-turned wood bowls is that you can think outside the box and use them in the most unique ways. Here are a few to consider:
- Aid in assembly projects- If you have ever purchased mass-produced furniture or other items that came with various screws, nuts, bolts, washers, and other hardware, you know that the second you open the packaging, there is the potential to lose an important part. With the use of a shallow wood bowl, you can keep the parts safe and easy to grab as you complete the assembly.
- Garden use- While you’d probably want to use baskets for bringing in a large harvest, wood bowls can be perfect for grabbing a few herbs, a couple of tomatoes, and other produce from your backyard garden for whipping up a salad or another quick meal.
- Décor- Wood bowls are a great way to add charm to any room. They are beautiful all by themselves, but can be dressed up with artificial fruit, colored wood or fabric balls, dried flowers, or whatever else strikes your fancy.
- Potpourri- If you are trying to reduce chemicals in your home, instead of spray air fresheners, consider small wood bowls placed around your home with fragrant potpourri as a healthier way to enjoy a fragrant home.
These are just a few of the unique ways you can use wood bowls around your home. Reach out to us at WKS Wood Design if you would like to learn about custom options that have a huge number of uses.
