I am interested and do so many things I didn’t get around to turning these blocks before they spalted, but that is not all bad. often it add to their beauty. These are all turned from birch and finished with wipe on poly. I think I will use the largest one for pop corn, I love pop corn as well as turning.
Thanks for looking and will include a couple of pictures of the bottom. Hard to take pictures of bowls to show the colors and variations of patterns.
Thanks for looking and comments appreciated.

They look beautiful Brian. I love the spalting.


-- 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.

Popcorn tastes even better from a wooden bowl you turned yourself, especially when it looks as nice as these.
