Here’s a 12” x 3.75” Red Oak salad bowl from a slab that I milled and dried. There was a large worm hole that ended up on the outside of the bowl, so I filled it with bluestone dust and CA glue. The finish is General Finishes salad bowl finish.

That is a nice looking bowl.
Did you have any problem filling the open grain on the Red oak? I don’t use it for “food” vessels because of the open grain.
General Salad Bowl finish is quite durable but when I can get it I prefer Behlen’s. Behlen’s is thicker and builds faster. Otherwise they are about equal in finish and durability.
