What a great piece.
I love the look of spalting and a turned piece seems to bring out the beauty of it even more.

Fantastic work.

Do you spalt the wood yourself?

Beautifull turning. Fantastic wood choice and great design.

Keep it up.

Big pieces can be impressive but I really like smaller ones like this. Great job.

Very pretty turning. Don’t forget your mask while working with spalted wood especially.
