Bowl Sizes Information

    Wooden Bowls
  • We make three sizes of wooden bowls. The relationship in size can be seen in the picture alongside.
  • We refer to them as "Large", "Medium" and "Small" with matching "Individual" soup or salad bowls available where indicated.
  • We start off with turning blanks of 15", 12" and 10" in diameter.
  • While the finished diameters vary slightly with the nature of the designs net average external diameters are 14-1/2"... 11-1/2" and 9-1/2".
  • The average height of all the bowl sizes is just over 5"
  • The individual soup or salad bowls are sized at 6-1/2" diameter with a height of 2-3/4"
  • While the size of a portion of salad is a very subjective thing, with experience, we are confident in the small bowl serving 4 to 6 people, the medium 6 to 8 people and the large 8 to 12 people. If you're looking for larger serving bowls, here they are!
  • Remember, these wooden bowls are not dish-shaped they have the full capacity of their diameter.

For the further curious here are the average volumes...

  • Large Bowl: 10 Quarts
  • Medium Bowl: 6 Quarts
  • Small Bowl: 4 Quarts
  • Individual Bowl: 1 Pint

Information You Need

  • All bowl sizes are given as a guide. Since each bowl is individually crafted slight variations in dimensions can occur.
  • No sustainability or regeneration problems arise from the harvesting of these species from natural and managed forest sources.
  • The tough, specially applied and hand rubbed finish, is a proprietary formulation developed over a number of years.
  • The only care required from the consumer is the gentle washing of the bowl in warm soapy water and towelling it dry.
  • Under no circumstances should this or any fine woodenware ever be put in a dishwasher.
  • Each bowl carries a label with these simple care instructions.
  • We know that the life of a bowl treated properly is greater than 40 years!!
  • Each bowl is individually packaged and boxed to allow us to send any size of order via UPS.
  • To minimize shipping costs boxes are grouped together whenever possible.

***All boards are made in Vermont at the John McLeod Ltd. factory in Wilmington, Vermont and sold in the factory store, as well as through the Vermont Bowl Company and here online. Many of these hardwood cutting boards are available in both Yellow Birch and Black Walnut woods.

Cutting board care suggestions...

Keep your cutting boards clean by washing with hot soapy water after each use. Then rinse and air dry or pat dry with towels. Always discard excessively worn cutting boards that may trap bacteria. You can also sanitize your kitchen cutting board with a vinegar solution consisting of a 1-to-5 dilution of vinegar. Flood the surface with a sanitizing solution and allow it to stand for several minutes, then rinse and air dry or pat dry with towels. It is also NOT necessary to "further treat" John McLeod wooden cutting boards with additional oils. All boards are treated with a proprietary food safe oil at the factory.
