That looks fantastic – a very good choice of wood as well as orientation for cutting!

Keep up the great work!

That’s a beauty of a spalting. I’d love to get my hands on some of that.

Beautifully done. Did you have to prepare the spalted maple in some way in order for it to work well? Sometimes it’s very soft and crumbly.

Thanks for the kind words.

The finish is sanding sealer and Renaissance wax.

To deal with tearout I soaked the roughed out piece in a mix (3:1) of water and yellow glue. I still have to shear scrap and sand but it was less.
