I added three beads outside the bowl to create visual interest and appeal to the touch. I also used wooden bleach to lighten the color of the wood considerably and definitely. The size and shape of this bowl offers many uses, including the salad portion, the display of fresh fruit, popcorn / chips, and many other uses that past customers have chosen.The finish is a mixture of urethane and tung oil. It is a penetrating finish that goes into the wood and not on it, leaving the appearance of a natural hand rubbed finish that feels soft and smooth, and is pleasant to the touch. The finish does not require any maintenance beyond a gentle cleaning. Description of care and caution included.
This item is made of wood.
