    Spalted Beech

    An hours worth of playing with yet more rotten wood.

    That's some very pretty wood and a great shape for a bowl too.

    Chas, too bad that wood spoiled rotten before you turned it. Now it has all those ugly swirly marks running all over it.

    Exceptionally well done! Not a hint of tear out showing.

    Boy Chas I wish I had rotten wood that looked that good. Beautiful bowl and I like the simple form.

    You should have seen the first few rough cuts before treatment.
