    Spalted Hollow Form #12

    This is another piece that came from my ‘homemade’ spalted birch supply. Some of the stock has spalt patterns that are amazing when turned! I highly recommend trying to get some of your wood to spalt. If timed correctly (meaning it’s not so far gone as to become punky) you will have some beautiful wood to work with!

    Spalted birch, 5 5/8” high x 8 ½” diameter, sanded to 400 grit, multiple thinned coats of poly.

    OK Steve, you can slow down now. You're making the rest of us look bad.

    That's another very nice piece. Excellent on all counts.
