16 inch spalted maple bowl, turned burned and colored. One of my first carvings Will never do a spalted carved or burned piece. Too inconsistent with the hard and soft woods.

Yes C and C welcome as always

You still did a great job on it Ron, worked the spalting in well with the coloring. Real nice.

Yeah Ron, like Bob said. The finished piece doesn’t show any of those problems, so you done well, Mate.

Thanks for sharing

Bob.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I wouldn’t beat yourself up too much with this one Ron, I think I came out real nice, There is possibly a bit too much competition goin on with the spalting & causing some distraction. A nice sized piece @ 16”
cheers

Pete it seams like the spalting was stronger when I applied the satin lacquer. Pet, Bob and Bob I am thankful for your comments and I can count on you all commenting on my post

Good point about the softness where the spalting is Ron. I wondered about a cutting board I saw recently with spalted maple in it, I was thinking it would cut easily in that area or liquids would soak into it. I think some guys soak it with chemicals to make it hard. Maybe on a special project I would do that. Anyhow, another nice piece you’ve come up with!

I find it hard to believe you would make a cutting board from Spalted wood. Spalting is a fungus in the wood, food safe. Yes the soft areas would hold oils or food particles. Just does not sound like it would be something I would want in my kitchen
