Turning is possibly my most rewarding form of woodworking. I love all of my time spent at the lathe. Spalted Maple and Walnut bowls, rolling pin is red oak, cherry, walnut and poplar

Woah… your no beginner :)... when you asked about my lathe I thought you were just getting into turning. You likely have a much better lathe and your certainly know how to turn that is for sure. Nice work! I love spalted wood! Nice job.

Thanks Corey. Actually I have not turned for the last two years. These pieces were turned while I was teaching in St. Louis. I sold my lathe before we moved back. I need to get back into it. I love to turn.

That spalted bowl is great, and the rolling pin is a one of a kind… but it must have been really hard to turn that cutting board ;)

Turning is great fun!

Beautiful work Ryan. I especially like the spalted Maple. Do you turn maple like this green or do you let it dry first?

It is my understanding that the spalting ocures only after the tree is dead. It is caused by decay and insects? All of the spatled wood I have seen has not been green.

I’m a turner too and they look really great. Have you seen any of Steven Hatcher’s turnings? He does the trees mostly and seasons on plates. Absolutely beautiful. I really like your spalted turning. Be careful I just got over a bout of serious infection from the spalted wood I was working with in my eyes. It took me about a month to get rid of. Wear protection, please. jockmike
