A gorgeous mesquite catchall featuring some dark contrasting wood rot. Don't worry, the wood rot has been treated and filled in with a food grade resin on the base. Use this beauty as a catchall in your entryway or as a fruit bowl on your kitchen counter.
Mesquite is found here in the Sonoran desert and is know for its rugged appearance full of knots, splits, worm holes and bark pockets. This piece was sourced locally!
Finish: This is finished with a food safe sealant made of linseed oil and beeswax.
Care: Hand-wash your handmade wooden piece with a mild soap and warm water. Wipe dry by hand and allow it to dry upstanding. Never allow your beauty to sit in water, aka dishwasher or filled sink. This may cause your piece to split or crack under those conditions. White vinegar or lemon can be used to disinfect and remove smelly odors.
Maintaining: Use a food-safe balm/wax/oil polish your hand crafted piece when it starts to look dry. This helps maintain its beautiful finish, prevents cracking, protects the grain against bacteria and helps repel water/humidity.
