This was a peice of spalted maple i turned for a turning competition. I was happy with the final result and love the detail in the wood. Originally i laminated up purple heart and beach but the tear out was so bad working with the purple heart i decided to change to the spalted maple and now im happy i did.

Very nice form and proportion – not too fragile-looking. As for purpleheart, i gave up on it. I believe it comes complete with evil spirits that hate woodturners. Life’s too short.

Very nice shape and choice of wood. did you have to stabilize the spalted wood to turn it so deep and thin?

I didnt stabilize the wood on this one. it was my first time turning spalted wood so i just gave it a shot seemed to go well. i found once it was getting thin, slow and gentle cuts were safest.

Have your say...
