Monkey Puzzle Bowl

This bowl is turned from a ring of Monkey Puzzle about two feet wide but because the pith was quite a lot to one side I ended up with this bowl approx 12" x 8".
I have never turned Monkey Puzzle before and I cant say as it will ever be my favorite wood to turn.Because you have to turn it wet it is quite a messy job and not the nicest smell.
I have soaked it in finishing oil and bagged it up to slow up the drying.
Time will tell if this is the best thing to do.
