Just monkeying around out there today and turned this bowl from a very nice piece of Camphor Laurel.
It made the shop smell like Vicks Vaporub ! haha
The finish is polyurethane.
It was a lot of fun.
Have a great day.

Looks good Eric! Are you sure there is only one bowl there? Looks like a stack to me!

now that is some monkeying around, and a round it truly is, now if i see this right, if you were to spill some out of your spoon, it would dribble down the outer ridges and not get onto the table or onto your clothes, this might be a wonder bowl…lol…could be…

Cool design, and like every one else thought it was a stack of bowls at first.

Eric

Nicly done.

One thing you might try to do in the same way you did this one is this

Get a very green piece of wood and make very shallow rings like you have around your but only 1/16 and lots of them. all the way down to the bottom. Hollow out the inside and them leave it out to dry. You will be amaized at the amount of worp it will do on the fins and make it look like a sea plant.

It looks like you made a whole set of bowls and then stacked them. Great visual effect Eric.
