Black Acacia bowl with a rounded bottom. 3 1/8 tall by 3 5/8 wide. Started with a hand rubbed coat of teak oil followed up with three coats of wipe on polly. Buffed with tripoli, white diamond & carnauba. I like the way the rounded bowls “wobble” before coming to a rest.

Nice looking bowl, I might have to try Teak Oil on my next turning. Hope to see more of your bowls.
