Carl Sherry Macadamia Nut Natural Edge Bowl 10.5″ x 8.5″ x 4″

This natural edge Macadamia wood bowl has a natural edge with bark.  Its grain is lacy; its finish is silky smooth.

Oahu craftsman Carl Sherry was born and raised in Manoa Valley on the island of Oahu, and attended Honolulu Community College. He spent his adult life working to help others through job training and workforce training. Nohea Gallery is honored to share his work with you.

Carl is dedicated to providing quality woodturnings of beautiful Hawaiian woods, and is especially known for his extraordinarily fine finish. As an artist, he always strives to make “that perfect bowl” and appreciates that others enjoy his work.

His first wood project was a Koa rocking chair, but when Carl noticed that people were asking for the cast-off curly wood from projects to make pens, he learned to turn pens on a lathe. Bowls were the natural progression from there.

Macadamia nut wood bowls are not often available, as the trees are prized for their delicious nuts.  Evidently, there was a Macadamia nut grove on Round Top in the 1920’s, and a Mac nut processing plant just a few blocks from us on Pohukaina street in Kaka’ako in the 30’s.  Who knew?

To care for your bowl by Carl Sherry, keep it out of bright sunlight and water, and dust it occasionally for many years of enjoyment.

The dimensions in the item description are for the bowl itself; dimensions under ‘additional information’ tab includes packing size when this item is packaged for shipment, mahalo!
