Wonderful bowl. The spalting is great. By finishing the bowl does that stop the spalting.

Dude !! This is a masterpiece.

Not only is the wood an exceptional find but your skills really bring this to life. The inlay is small, eye-catching and beautifuuly done. Great great job.

I would love to know what this sells for if that’s what you are gonna do with it.

Great work!!! Beautiful wood. Other than firewood, have never worked with elm. We lost a lot of them to Dutch Elm disease over the years. Hope to find some that looks like that someday.

Thank you for the comments. It’s one of my favorite pieces of wood so far. Jaykay, I did sell it. It only took 60 seconds from the first person seeing a photo of it, so I probably underpriced it. I’m still newish to turning and semi-new to selling things.

Agreed, awesome bowl, wood, inlay, skill, and eye. That is the mostest awsomest wood I’ve seen in some time and your manipulation of to bring to the forefront and display to the world what was once hidden from view is out there. Great work. I stand in admiration. That inlay REALLY pops!
