Spalted Maple Vase
I turned this vase also. Boy was this thing a bear to turn. As I got into it I found it really punky wood. I used CA and finally got some Minwax Wood hardener. I had a neck on it like the first one but it just fell apart so just cut it off. I also did something on the inside that was a first for me and painted it black. It makes it look like the depth goes forever. This one is 7" tall and 6" across. Finished with 3 coats of satin wipe on poly. The LOML wanted it for some reason and wanted a satin finish.
