My friend Tim brought over this piece of spalted beechwood he found while cutting fire wood to see what I could do with it since it had such pronounced spalting. It was too thin to turn and it had chip out of the back that I repaired by skiving the back and gluing in another piece from the end. This is where it went. Their picture is in the photo disc!

It is finished with Matte Clear spray.

Thats really sweet Jim.
And you managed to keep the main spalting line clear.
Someone will be really happy.
Best thoughts my friend,

Dusty, I wish we lived closer. I could use more of them.!! They can be put in almost anything.

Mads, that was my primary concern on this piece. I located the hole low enough to keep the dark spalt line unbroken.

Jim , this was my source for the picture inserts at the time .
http://stores.ebay.com/JWL-hawnkoa-products
Excellent “ebayer” , easy to get along with , and he gave me a few “extras” due to the volume of stuff that I bought from him. Very fast shipping , and not a single damaged piece in any of my orders. That’s saying something for his packaging seeing as he is in Hawaii , and I am in Massachusetts : )
Worth some of your time to explore his site / store.
Let me know if he doesn’t carry the solid brass w/ glass bezel picture inserts any longer , and I’ll fix you up : )

Too many items at his store to see in one sitting. I want to try some of those “frog” projects my self. : )
