This is spalted fiddleback Dogwood. Dimensions are 9”w X 8”h. The finish is first a lacquer coat all over to protect and seal the spalting. Then I used Arm-R-seal oil and urethane finish, 5 coats and then paste wax. The sanding was done with 400 grit and the paste wax applied with 4/0 steel wool.

For those of you outside the Pacific Northwest, there is a tradition of lore which says that “when the Dogwood are blooming, the Spring Salmon are running.”
