More spalted alder...who'da guessed? This piece is a good example of the spalting I'm seeing throughout most of my recent haul from the neighbor lady's yard. This bowl is about 11 1/2" wide by 5" tall. It's the biggest one I've made so far. It's finished with my same ol' same ol' Formby's Tung Oil blend, but I still need to finish buffing it. My bigger buffing wheels (and bowl buffs) still haven't arrived, and my little 6" wheel can't reach the inside of the bowl.
I did something a little different with the rim...it's one of those "some will like it and some won't" kind of things.
