I like your treatment of your "rotten" wood... I look for that when I can find it..
here are a few pieces that I've worked up... one of the pieces is a piece of white oak or champion oak... my friend named her tree and when it died and was cut she offered me what ever I wanted of it... after ruining 3 chain saws, I settled for a few of the limbs and a couple of bumps off the trunk... this piece had some worm work in the bottom, but it gets lots of attention.
The whiter pieces are Hackberry... the center of these trees tend to rot out and then the outer edges will curl in to try and heal the wounds... makes for some really interesting wood. I was surprised when I cut into this at the amount of spalting I had.
The last two are a couple of maple pieces...
