    Spalted Hackberry Bowl

    While cleaning up the shop a few weeks ago I found a buried crotch log that my dad gave me last year. I cut it in half and turned this with one side. 11" wide and 4" tall. Finish is danish oil. Just realized I still need to sign it.

    As always, comments/critques please.

    PS...Dad do you still have some of the hackberry?

    Jeff, that is an awesome piece. I think there is probably some of that left in my wood stash if I can find it. Dad

    Jeff,
    That's a fantastic looking piece of wood.... I have several pieces of hackberry laying under a tarp in my shop yard... sure hope I get some spalting like that.

    The bowls ain't bad either... very very nice.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    That is some crazy spalting. Wonder how long the yellow and green colors will last.
    I like turning hackberry a/k/a sugarberry, it can finish with a real nice chatoyance.
    And, very nice turning.
