I never understood the attraction for rotting wood (spalted) until this project. The 3” cube in cube was made from a scrap of soft maple. It was meant to be a quick project using my new Delta 16-900L drill press and it didn’t take long. The Delta has none of the wobble that my previous Hitachi had. My only problem with the new DP came when the pulley at the top of the spindle shaft came loose. That seemed to be easy to fix though. What really surprised me was the beauty of the wood when the 2 coats of Danish Oil were applied and even more so after the 2 coats of wax. Now I really want to finish the partially completed but warped bowl that this scrap was leftover from.
PS the pictures don’t do the look of the wood justice.
