That is a very good looking bowl and the wood is incredible. Nice job.
I took some of Steve's wood that I am turning into bottle stoppers and soaked the pieces in shellac cut way down with DA. I turned one piece today and it worked pretty good but I didn't wait long enough for it to dry completely. the part that was dry turned really good.

Wow, that is some serious spalting action there my man. Looks awesome. Great job.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

beautiful wood, nicely turned

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

What I do is flood the punky areas with thin CA glue, turn the hardened part until it shows punky and repeat until ready to sand. Then I put on 2-3 coats of 1lb cut shellac before sanding. Very nice work for your first punky piece.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Nice work. I live in Harlan Co. Ky and teach school in Bell Co. I saw your from Rockholds. I went with a friend one time to take a grouse dog to a man in Rockholds for training.
