    spalted crab apple

    Needed something to do this am. So went looking through my not sure bin,found this little piece of crab apple i'd ruffed out about a year ago. Thought what the heck why not give it a go. Aprox 6x4 3/4, finish is shellac, followed by multi coats lacquar, knocked the lacquar off with a scotch pad ,and this is what it became. might wax and buff later,but who knows.

    PS: that spot in the front is what was left from a worm hole. In the pic it looks deep, but it ain't. as the piece is only about 3/16 thick.

    Thanks guys. Didn't think this one would happen when i ruffed it out. Had even left some of the bark on it couse i thought it would crack in half. I guess it was just enough for that worm to made a home.
