Huon Pine is widely regarded as one of Australia's premium woodworking timbers, prized for its fine grain, buttery colour and high oil content, making it especially water-resistant. Because of this quality, it was logged extensively for boat building in the past and being an extremely slow-growing tree, the Huon Pine forests of South West Tasmania were decimated. They are now protected from logging and most Huon Pine used in woodcraft is salvaged timber.
Huon Pine's inherent qualities also make it a perfect timber for a salad bowl - fine-grained, water-resistant and with its trademark soft yellow colour, gradually darkening with time and use to a honey gold. This particular design is a classic salad bowl shape with its wide rather than deep proportions and turned rim, the sort of shape you might draw if asked to do a salad bowl! The 30cm size is very versatile, catering for up to 6 people and doubling happily as a fruit bowl if preferred. With its perfectly proportioned elegance, beautiful colour and classic simplicity it would accommodate all types of salad and suit any table setting.
