A small vase 10” high and 5” in dia. I was really pleased with the spalting but some of it was soft enough, I was afraid it might fly apart. Buffed salad bowl finish.

Interesting spaltling on the dog wood. I have a few cherished pieces saves for some special project. It is hard to come by and t it turns like a dream. My local wild dog wood has a slight pink color to the wood. I have heard there is a fungus that is slowly killing the wild dog wood on the west coast.

Very nice, I never have seen a piece of dogwood large enough to turn.

Dogwood is the state tree here and there is a lot of it. Pretty in the spring, just more brush the rest of the time. It is real heavy and hard, makes good mallets. I turned a mallet I use for chisels and it works well. Thanks for the compliments.
