Spalted Bowl

This is my second bowl ever made. I gave it to my wife as her Valentines Day present. It is made from a piece of Spalted Hackberry that I bought. I didn’t do anything fancy with the shape, I just wanted to get some more experience and confidence with bowl making.

I added a maple medallion inlaid on the bottom so that I could use my new branding iron to “sign” it. It was sanded to 600 grit, then finished with 3 coats of gloss wipe-on poly for durability.

Thanks for looking. :)

Beautiful piece of wood. Neat to see how the different hardwoods spalt.

Very spalted and very nice. You’re hooked now. You’ll never be able to walk past a wood pile again.
