Pocket Dump Leaf Bowl

Pocket Dump Leaf Bowl

Wood: Pine
Dimensions: Measures 9 1/2 inches across by 2 1/4 inches tall
Finish: High Friction Polish

In its first life this bowl was a table leaf from an Ethan Allen Table. I don't know what happened to the table, but the leaf was discarded. There is a hole in the side (see the last photo) where the leaf and table connected.

As pocket dump bowls go this is a good size for someone who carries a wallet, pocket knife, keys, phone and not much more. Pine is soft wood so it will be somewhat prone to dents and scratches. If you're someone who chucks their stuff instead of placing it you should probably choose a bowl made from a harder wood. On the other hand, if you like the lived in look go ahead and chuck your stuff because this is your bowl.

Incidentally, just because I call it a 'pocket dump bowl' doesn't mean it is not suitable for holding other things. Like tangerines, for example.
