the finish is presently just a coat of natural stain to block moisture absorption
ah ... whoops !! This one started out with a base but I cleverly managed to break a big chunk out of it, so making a virtue out of necessity, I've turned this into a little mini-bowl with a flat bottom. Actually, I like it so much that I'll probably do more of them.
NOTE: this bowl has been finished and is now available on my bowl-sale site: www.phinds.com/bowls/
