comments: Pine is such as common wood that I am sometimes asked why I use it in my bowls. I think the image of view 2b below gives a good answer.
Very sharp (in several senses of the word) rim on this one, as often happens in this type of bowl ("C6" with the flat angled rim sides).
All very colorful and/or grainy woods in this one.
