Palo Verde II

I've had this post in my queue for a while, 3 days in fact.  I finished hollowing this small piece of Palo Verde on Thursday night.

I still have some sanding to do and there is still a small nub on the bottom I need to get rid of.  I'm also undecided on a finish.  Do I use my normal Danish oil finish or do I leave it completely natural?

The nub on the bottom with some of the darker spalting.  I was hoping there would be more bug holes but it just wasn't to be.

Profile shot.  I'm really happy with the shape, it could have curved up a bit more at the opening but it would have made hollowing more difficult.  It's approximately 1/8" thick.
