My wood supplier friend had this large stump of Mayday given to him so that he could turn some lovely vases. The stump sat on his shelf for a few years and then I got my hands on it. I had no idea that it was severely spalted. Saving it from the fire pit I came up with these little beauties. I had no idea that they would stain in such a variation. They are little gems! Hence , A Family Tree!
They give me a lot of pleasure.

A great family tree! Have you tried anything else with these beauties?

Hi Littlepaw, I would have liked a few board feet of this wood to make some panelled doors for a cabinet. Unfortunately it was a stump about 14 inches high and 12 inch diameter. The original intent was to have the piece turned into a vase or bowl.
