This lovely little bowl is made from ‘Tineo’ from Chile. It is 4-3/4” in diameter and about 2” high, with an enameled solid pewter lid from Craft Supplies USA. It’s quite a showy wood, and polished up like a gem. Danish oil and Carnuba wax for the finish.

Nice. What tool did you use to hollow/undercut the inside?

Thanks Brian. I used my carbide cutting tool for undercutting the rim:

A real beauty! The shape and grain of the wood are incredible!

Thanks Mike. That cutter handle is curly cherry. Photo may be a little over-exposed.
