This is spalted maple.
Here is what I plan to do and what I’m looking for.
I was toying with the idea of shellacing the whole piece before I introduce any glue for the fill so I need advice there, to shellac, or not to shellac first to fill the grain.
Second, I want to fill in these holes but I don’t want the filler to come flush, I want to use epoxy and colored stone to do the finishing but something has to fill those holes up. What?
I dare not turn it any deeper for fear it will break. The lip will be a little thinner though.
Any other advice is appreciated. I don’t want to mess this piece up, it’s pretty.
