    More spalted Hackberry

    Jeff Bower posted pictures of his spalted hackberry "torpedoes" reminded me I had some hackberry recently... my pastor had a tree that fell in a storm and let me haul it away for him. This is a bowl that I got out of a piece of the tree... some spectacular spalted wood - if I do say so myself....

    Sorry, I intended to put that in, but by the time I found the picture had forgotten about dims... the bowl is 12" diameter and about 3" deep... finish is 5 coasts of polyurethane - the first 4 in gloss and the fifth in a satin... LOML prefers the satin look to a gloss, but I like the gloss as under coats to give the finish a little depth.

    It's an interesting wood... this is another bowl, from the same tree, but with less spalting... this bowl is very light weight... it's 9 1/2" x 3" deep and also finished with poly gloss with overcoat of satin. Click image for larger version.

    These bowls are also Hackberry, but hasn't started to spalt yet... they are all about 9 1/2 dia x about 3" deep... they are all cored from bigger bowls that I'm working on for a special order.... all finished with poly. Click image for larger version.

    These are from some different logs and were still a little green plus they had laid outside and been rained on, so more water in them... the bigger bowls have held their shape, but the cores have moved a little and aren't quite as round as when I first finished them.
