Had some spalted beech which I payed next to nothing for (I know paying nothing would have been better) measures 7 1/2” by 1 3/4” that is why I left the chucking recess in it. Tried to keep it a simple form as the wood says it all.

Pretty wood. I don’t get a chance at beech. I like anything spalted. Good job.

Absolutely AWESOME wood.

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.

Spectacular bowl Derek. If you run across anymore “next to nothing costing wood” send it my way :-)
