I used wet, unseasoned wood and after shaping, allowed it to carefully dry. The rim of this bowl has a tiny spike left from a the start of a tiny branch. I worked carefully to make sure this aligned perfectly with the rim of the bowl.
The finish on this piece is all-natural, blonde shellac, applied in dozens of thin coats for a very natural satiny finish.
This piece is not intended for food, but is food-safe. Should be kept dry. Clean with a dry soft cloth.
Approximately 3" tall x 6.5" long x 5.5" wide.
