Small bowl/plater call it what you like I had a round of spalted beech which started at 9 1/2” X 2” and ended up 7 1/2” X 1”. It was so near the point as being firewood not that wood this soft in places would be any good on the fire. Whilst turning it I had to keep applying sander sealer to help with stabilizing it.

Anyway i persevered and this was the result

Beautiful wood and great results. I have that problem fairly often and have started using Elmer’s water based wood stabilizer. It is saving many pieces for me that other products wouldn’t. Just a tip if you want to give it a try but what you are doing seems to be working just fine.

Very dramatic spalting. Well worth the effort.
