Which woods are good for making a salad bowl, and what preparation would the newly-made bowl need before being used?

We need a new salad bowl and a friend is learning wood-turning. I am tempted to try to commission him to make us one, but I don't know what sort of wood to start with and how to treat it once the bowl is made. Maybe his wood-turning teacher would help with all this anyway, but I'd like to be better informed myself.
I suppose an alternative answer might be that it is too ambitious and I should just go and buy one! What do you think? Thanks!
