Free-form bowls, natural-edge turnings and bowls containing wood that is beautiful but too soft to use for salads all make wonderful additions to the home. Besides being decorative, such items can be used as fruit bowls, vases for dried flowers, pencil holders, magazine "racks", knitters' yarn holders, bowls of hand-towels in the bathroom - only your imagination limits the use!
