The Sweet Heart Dough Bowl is approximately 6 x 6.5 x 2.5 inches in dimension. The wood is carved out of Spanish Oak. Please understand these are wooden bowls made to look rustic from raw wood. Some may have knot holes, scratches, knife marks, saw blade marks, sap or minor cracks and blemishes. These are not defects. These are a natural part of the bowl that have been made from raw wood. Size, color and shape will vary. We do try to minimize these for each bowl. However, we cannot guarantee your bowl will not have any of these character marks. This item is not pre-treated for candles nor is it fire retardant.
