Here is a bowl I made for a friend, turned up the bowl then I cut in half and glued in a sheet of Jarrah and returned it to smooth off the edges.
I then carved up the handles with the help of a Dremel 300 carver and also a Dentist suspended motor and hand piece, the carving bits were readily available round nose bits and a sanding mandrel.
All the wood is Jarrah (Eucalyptus marginata).
Finish is spray varnish (Satin).

Wow. Must have taken a lot of guts to push that already beautiful bowl through the saw. Well done.
