“WOODS” come in all colours. The recommended way to choose the size of your bowl is to wrap your hands around the running edge, so that the tips of the thumbs touch on one side and the tips of the middle fingers just touch on the other. This allows you to hold the bowl for delivery without dropping it; the tips of your fingers underneath and your thumb on top. It’s advisable to use as large a bowl as you can handle and deliver comfortably. Try a few!
