I've had this chunk of spalted maple laying in the shop doorway for about 5 months... it's part of a big maple that came down about 4 years ago.. about year before we moved in... I have about 1/2 to a ton of this stuff laying behind the shop under a tarp hopefully not rotting before I get to it.
The bowl is about 11 inches outside diameter, about 6 inches deep. It's not finished, I want to take a little more off the inside walls and off the bottom. I knocked it loose in the chuck so I brought it in to show the wife... she's always after me to make bigger bowls... hopefully, I can get it back to near smooth turning with as little wobble as possible, so I can finish it..
Apologize for the pictures.. since it isn't finished, I didn't get out the light box.. just some quick pics with the wife's little digital.
