    One for Rob & Mohammad

    Just so you get to see more of the rotten wood.

    It's 4-3/8" h x 3-1/2" d.

    Don't you get 'rotting wood' over there? Pretty common here I'm afraid though as Chas demonstrates can produce some pretty nice effects.

    The mix of the spalted wood and the superb job of beading makes it a winner in my book!

    Very nice, Chas. The beading really frames the spalted part nicely. Did you start with a glued-up blank, or just happen to find a piece of beech with perfect boundaries between the good and rotten parts?

    Here You Go Vaughn

    Only difference now is I reverse mount item to remove chucking socket.

    Example is using thin CA, I also use thicker versions, judgement call on wood porosity really and how quick I want to proceed.

    Larger items I use Casamite not CA, timescale goes up though as I leave each section overnight to cure.
    With mounting care you can do that at the end of each day for next ring so that lathe is free to play.

    Used to Use PVA, bonding good but joints can creep.
