A few months ago I stumbled across a bunch of fresh maple being thrown into the chipper. I was able to save a trunkload of them and cut them into bowl blanks.
This large crotch piece was cut into a 16” diameter blank.
I kept it in a large trash bag full of moist soil for a couple months hoping to see spalting.
Once I began turning, I was pleasantly surprised to find not only spalting but good figure and curl in the piece!
Here are the pics from log to bowl.
