Oh good LOL

The customer likes the salad bowl so it will be going out soon.  Just a quick word about things made for food. Make sure that the wood you use is a safe one. Avoid any that are potentially toxic like yew, laburnum, iroko etc and always use an oil that is food safe.Olive oil can apparently go off after a time so I don't use that. A simple supermarket cheap brand is fine, you don't have to got the expense of the specialised stuff. It also means that the item is easily maintained.
