A glued up piece of pine found in the scrap bin in my classroom. Was the perfect size for a shallow bowl.

Great bowl. Soft wood like Pine can be challenging to turn. You said it was the “right” size. What is the size?
You marked it “not for food”. Why is that? Could a salad bowl finish correct that problem and also increase the durability of the wood?

My wife finds that type of bowl very handy and I have made several from 5” to 18” in diameter for her.

I gave it away as a gift to my supervisor. It was about 6 inches in diameter and about 1.25” tall.

Pine is easy to turn for me. I have had a lot of success with pine.

I probably used a non-food safe finish. But since I turned it and put finish on it earlier this year i do not remember what I used so instead of getting a lawsuit for someone getting sick because of it, the “not for food” was my disclaimer.
