hey everyone,
this is my first go at a natural edge bowl

turned from silky oak which I think is marketed as lacewood in the US
its 70mm tall by 130mm wide (about 3 by 5 inches)

the finish is EEE Ultra Shine and Shellawax
thanks for looking
comments and critiques welcome

I love the way the natural edge shows the open cells in the grain. Beautiful!
