Use your bowls for bread, uncut fruit, nuts, wrapped candy, etc. Place a glass or other waterproof bowls inside your Blake's Bowl to hold moist, foods or flowers.
Clean with a dry or damp soft cloth.
Avoid extremes of temperature and humidity; these stress wood and can lead to cracks.
Avoid lengthy exposure to sunlight, which hastens the darkening of wood.
Solid wood segments that form your bowl are joined with Titebond III glue, which is waterproof, approved for indirect food contact.
