I have some spalted hackberry sitting around and thought it would make for an interesting staved vessel. This is the second staved vessel attempt. I left this one open due to the pretty grain configuration. It has some worm channels in it that adds to the uniqueness.
Thanks for viewing.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone.

It’s around 5-1/2 tall, and almost 5 wide.

Nice vessel! I have a bunch of hackberry I’ve been letting spalt for about 6-8 mos. now. just cut some bowl blanks last weekend, I’ll be posting some pics as soon as they’re finished. I never thought of hack berry as a pretty wood, but it sure spalts and turns nice!

Natalie, Hackberry is a hideous looking tree from the outside, but internally it can be very pretty. it does tend to rot rather quickly though, so you gotta catch it at just the right time!

Thanks for the kind words.
This was a little challenging due to the soft spots in it. I am guessing it was from the spalting process and there was some deterioration occurring in the wood cell structure.
Fun anyway.
