Simple Wooden Bowl No334
This silver-dollar wooden bowl with it’s organic shape and flowing lines has quite enough personality to stand alone as a display piece or will work just as well pressed into service.

What does the Functional Rating mean?
The Functional Rating runs from 1 - 5 and is my way of giving you an idea of how functional a bowl or platter is.
It depends on the type of wood, whether it has a smooth surface on the inside or is a more artistic piece with voids and inclusions.
Some bowls are made to be very functional and some are not. The functionality scale gives you a quick indication.
1 = Solely suitable as a display piece or art piece.
2 = Suitable to hold large items such as fruit or bread. May have large voids.
3 = Suitable as a fruit bowl or for leafy salads. May have voids, but is robust.
4 = Quite suitable for daily salads and the like. Water-tight but may be finely turned or have a natural edge.
5 = Suitable for almost everything including hot foods, even soup. These items are robust and can be treated as real work-horses.
