I really enjoy making these. most of this came from scrap lumber, the last spalted one was free wood. I am trying to get a set identical but getting them exact is a bit of a challenge. It takes me about 3 hrs to complete one. They are 8” mills and tomorrow i am going to try a different style. I’m using Captain Eddy’s OB shine juice for the finish.

I love the spalted one. Is there any reason to be concerned about salt or pepper coming in contact with the spalted wood? I understand that spalting is caused by fungi.

The molds that cause spalting are around us all the time. They not active when the wood’s moisture content is below 20%. I would say it would be fine as long as the wood is dry.
