The grain and markings in this closely matched set of spalted birch bowls is so impressive, that the Spalting almost appears as if each bowl has been artistically hand painted. You will not find another set like this anywhere. These bowls have been individually hand turned to match in size and shape as closely as possible. After turning, they are sanded to an extremely smooth finish and then sealed with a food grade quality hard Tung oil Finish. Multiple applications of the Tung oil sealer provide the high gloss finish on this dazzling set of bowls. The heirloom quality of this set would be a magnificent gift to that special someone.
