This is a spalted maple bowl that I turned for my daughter. It was treated with red and black aniline dye then finished in clear lacquer. One of my first projects using aniline dye.

@jinkyjock, I usually wear a dust mask, and have never had an issue with spalted woods. The only wood that has caused issues is cocobolo, which has a history of causing some respiratory issues in some folks…me being one of those folks! Rule of thumb, wear a mask!
