    Another Spalted Hackberry Bowl

    This is the other half of the log that also produced this bowl. This one is a little smaller in diameter, only 10" but just about the same height, 4". Pics were taken quickly because I was running late to a house warming party, and I needed to get pics taken fast. It now sits atop a counter in a friends newly built home and they want some more pieces too!

    That's a beautiful piece of wood, Jeff. Nicely done job of turning.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Wow Jeff, that is sure nice, but I'd certainly NOT want to drop that one on my foot!

    Jeff,
    I sure hope my hackberry spalts that nicely.. that is a beautiful piece of wood.

    Chuck this hackberry isn't hard at all, but it is VERY spalted, to the point of almost to spalted.

    Wish I had a way to make wood spalt like this, but it was just left in my dad's wood pile and it ended up this way. I'm going to raid his stash Memorial Day weekend if there is any left.
