While helping a friend to cut his firewood, i found a branch of poplar that was heavily spalted. I took a piece home, sliced it on the BS, stabilized it by immersing few times in poly/turps 1:1 until it stopped drinking it, let it dry, sanded a bit, put a layer of poly X 10 and here is the result! I am giving it back to him tomorrow as a b-day present.
I was hoping (as the firewood pile was seasoned and the wood spalted) that it will not check. Alas, it did.
if you are trying to do that – remember that spalted dust is poisonous so take care. thats why I stabilized it but for the BS – wear a mask and use dust extractor.
-- The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep...
