You just have to love SPALTING.

Thanks for showing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Great fine! The spalting and patterns on the wood is amazing, like the finish as well. Great turning pieces!
