I tried a walnut collar out… don’t know if I went through the best process of making one… but it came out okay. This is 5 1/2” high and 4 3/4” in diameter.

Beautiful grain—you really coaxed the hidden nature out of that piece from mother nature. Outstanding job!

Nice job – did you have to stabilize the wood before turning?

That is a great looking vase. Your choice of a walnut collar with the spalted maple is well pronounced.

Thank you everyone. The finish is 3 coats of shellac sanding inbetween, and then 5 coats of wipe on poly.

Nice – we’ve been playing with spalted maple and beech lately. Making for some very cool turnings.
Good choice of a log for this one, I like when the branch intersections come in at odd angles and you get that little spider web split out from the knot.
We’re stabilizing with epoxy on most of ours, as they are storm falls and firewood saves. A few exploded while hollowing out before we got to stabilize but we’re getting enough to survive to get some cool stuff.
Keep going – great way to turn firewood into artwork!

The spaulted pieces are my favorite as they are unique and so dang interesting. Very nice turning !
