    Spalted Hacberry Vase and bowl

    I've been busy on the lathe as I wrote here: http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ead.php?t=6781

    These are spalted hackberry that my dad brought up to me last month. The vase is 7" W X 10" T and the small bowl is 6"W X 5"T. Finish is Watco Danish Oil, but I think I will add some wipe on poly to each as well. Comments and critques are strongly encouraged.

    Beautiful wood Jeff! You must have caught it at just the right time - before it became to soft to turn! The Watco brought out the spalting really good. Have to believe some poly would help make things pop even more! Nice work! Looking forward to seeing what you turn next!

    What Steve said. I think that's some of the best-looking spalted hackberry I've seen. Great job, Jeff.

    The simple forms really allow the spalting to speak for itself. Nice.
