I do do normal Chas, just prefer weird What's the attraction in Leicester?
Great bowls Pete, both the "normal" as Chas says and the other.
Maybe I should bury some maple in the garden to have it spalted.
Human induced Spalting is something I want to try someday, for the moment I'm gathering as much info as I can.

Very nice Pete.

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.
Thanks guys. Chas is referring to the fact that I like turning the bits of wood that others throw away, usually with bits missing or bits that fly off 'cos they are rotten. Hence the unusual 'normal' comment.
Nice work on both bowls, Pete. That UK beech is sure noce-looking wood. I'm with Chas...I didn't realize you had any "whole" blanks.
