Thread: Spalted HF

    Spalted HF

    This is another one made from wood that Larry sent me. Red Maple; spalt, figure, voids, qiute a bit going on. It was almost too far gone in the spalting, very pecky. I gave it a good soaking with full strength poly, let it harden a few days, then turned to finish, it worked great. The top and bottom are soft maple, painted black, poly all over. 7"x11".

    I loved these forms from the first time I found Cindy Drozda and this is an excellent example. Hard to get leg and finial right but looks like you have it spot on. Complements rather than detracts from that beautiful wood.
