Spalted Southern Magnolia Pedestal Bowl

This Bowl is made from a Southern Magnolia tree that was blown down in a storm. I was able to dry it slowly and save the pith and get a little spalting of the wood in the process.
The bowl measures 6 1/2 inches wide by 5 3/4 inches high and has a satin lacquer finish and would make a great candy dish.

Looks good! How did you like working with that Magnolia? We have a ton here in Texas and I have always wondered what the wood was like.

Stunning work. Do you have to treat the spalted material before or while turning with CA?

Really spectacular piece of wood and you did an excellent job turning it. This is the kind of turning I like. I don’t currently turn but if I did this is they type of thing I’d hope to achieve. Thanks for sharing it.
