    Nice work, Ken. Do you run into any problem with punkiness with the spalted stuff? I've had a few pieces of spalted hackberry that were like turning old styrofoam.

    There was no smell with this spalted wood it seems to be in the early stages and it wasn't soft either.Thaks for your comments.

    Hello Kenneth,

    Thanks for posting your photos, you've turned some really nice bowls. The last picture on the right has nice zone line definition - good job. Take care and best wishes to you and yours!

    That 7x3 spalted one needs a special place to be displayed. I have just the place in my house, so you should send it to me for safekeeping! They are all pretty, but that one is gorgeous!!

    Hi Ken, I agree with Nancy about that specific bowl. It is a beauty. They all are. I just got done watching a DVD on turning a winged bowl. It does that extra care. You did a eally nice job.
