This great looking spalted piece of wood came from a piece of White Oak that was in my firewood pile for the last two years It measured 22” in diameter, and about 24” long. I was avoiding trying to split it, for it had many limbs, and just laughed at my small 7 ton splitter I finally got around to taking my chain saw and started cutting some 6” pieces from it. Afterthe first cut, I just knew that this thing had to somehow end up on my lathe The wood is very sound, and has no punk in it anywhere. There is one knot that goes all the way thru. I have three more pieces left that are equally as nice. I donated this bowl to the Forty et Eight Society, They are raffeling it off and the procedes will be used to support their Nurses Training Program. The bowl is about 10 1/2” X 4 1/2” The orange spot on the rim was a natural marking.
