The Grain is Lovely

I purchased this on closeout so was a great price for this wooden bowl. I do have to say the first one that was delivered...the packing had much to be desired. There was a heavy salt vessel placed inside the bowl with no bubble wrap. Needless to say the edges of the bowl were scratched and chipped. Sierra Trading was great in replacing due to the damage. The bowl is quite large and I am delighted with it. I only utilize this type of bowl when serving a crowd so the size is just what I needed. The acacia wood is very dry looking. I don't know if there is a finish of some kind on this bowl and the description did not specify. I used some wood cutting board oil and soaked it overnight. The next morning I wiped the excess off and the bowl is very pretty. I am pleased with this purchase and would say if you are looking for a large salad bowl this will fit the bill.
