Very nice! I have tried a few spalded woods, but ended up too rotten I guess…...

Hi Mike,

Funny you mention that, when I started turning the spalted one a month ago, it was looking very punky and I thought it would end up being firewood. Finished turning it today and the sponginess was turned out to my surprise. Glad I hung in there on this piece. Bob
