When I have a natural edge to deal with I usually use a spray on Shellac. I apply multiple light coats. Shellac dries fast so you can get several coats on in a day.

Also – Shellac will work as a base for any other finish. One could use spray on Shellac for the entire bowl and then add something more durable (lacquer, poly, BLO, whatever) on the smooth portion.
