I need to buy a salad bowl and was thinking wood because that's what my mom always used. I noticed munising vintage bowls on eBay are really beautiful, reasonable and most are carved from a single piece of wood.
Question 1: many have paintings in the inside of the bowl so I can't strip it down bare and re-oil. Will that be a problem?
Question 2: is there any practical benefit to wood? Or is it just a nostalgia?
