Very nice. I turned some spalted hackberry recently and it resulted in the fugliest bowl I’ve ever seen. It’s just not a very attractive wood to me. Turns nicely though.

Nice turning, I see you had a few punky spots in there. Did you stabilize them anything? Hackberry is not the most interesting of woods but I kinda like the creamy butterscotch color. I guess it’s pretty common here in the south.

Good looking bowl Dean – I happen to like the Hackberry, interesting color. I was also curious about the punky looking spots, did you use some CA glue to stabilize them?

Hackberry has become one of my favorite woods for turning because of the different “characters” it can display, especially in wood from older trees. This is a piece I turned from the base of a limb that fell off a huge old tree.
Note the tiger stripes as well as the spalting. The bowl was finished with 8 coats of tung oil.

Have your say...
