If you like the appearance, just put your finish on it without staining. If you use a hard finish like lacquer, urethane or varnish, your bowl will be functional. I wouldn't eat from it, but I certainly would set fruit in it.Thanks tony. Should i like the appearance (see your 1st para) do i just leave it alone as finished? Assuming it looks ok? We will prob use place mats when dining
