Turned burr Totara bowl.

Turned burr Totara bowl.

SKU: 8100205

New Zealand has some highly valued native timbers. One of those is Totara, a species of podocarp tree which grows in the North Island and top of the South Island of New Zealand. It was, and I believe remains, a wood valued by Maori for its durability and suitability for carving and the building of waka (a traditional Maori canoe). Today we are pleased to offer you a small, turned, wooden bowl made from a Totara burr. The mottled effect is visually stunning in this piece and the finish is true quality. The bowl is 6 ¾” (172mm in diameter and as can be seen in the photographs, sits on three equidistant Totara feet, giving a rim height of 2 ½” (64mm). This is a true ‘statement piece’ for the collector. Postage will be determined at point of sale and is a cost to the buyer. We do this to ensure that our charges are accurate and fair. Therefore we respectfully ask that you contact us prior to purchase, so an accurate postage cost can be agreed.

  • Packaging and postage.

    With every item we sell, it is our intention to take every possible care to have it delivered to you in the same condition as when it left our premises. For this reason, packaging is tailored to each item and provides the maximum protection that we consider the item requires. Any item that arrives in a damaged condition should be referred to your postal service in the first instance for assessment of their handling of the package. If satisfaction is still lacking then we will look to see whether our efforts have been inadequate for fair handling of an item and if it is found to be so we will refund the cost of the item. Postage has now become a major cost in ecommerce so we try to strike a balance that will not unduly add excessive cost to your purchase.
