I have inherited a old (possibly teak wood) salad bowl set. The finish has worn off (light mahogany) in various spots on the bowls. How do I refurbish these bowls (hopefully, so they could be useable)?

You could use mineral oil. It might even out the color of the bowl. Mineral oil is the same stuff to use with wood cutting boards, so it should be safe to use with wood bowls.
Mineral oil is a byproduct from refining oil to gas... yes baby oil is same with added cologne, but would you get baby oil? Use vegetable oil, olive, corn or soy bean oils on wood handled knives, cutting boards, wooden dishes, bowls, cooking utensils, never anything that will transfer to food. Some of us have base allergy to petroleum and by products.
