Hey Tim,
Looks good. Hackeberry, hackberry, potato, pottato, who can denounce it. Nice looking piece of wood, turned out well.

It's sure looks a lot like spalted Hackberry to me. The difference in patina inside the bowl from the outside is dramatic (brownish inside)
and the way the annular rings look close to the heartwood make me think it is indeed Hackberry....Nice woodturning.

I think that Hackberry is my favorite wood of all time for use on the lathe. I have piles of it outside of my house waiting the two to three years it takes to get the spalted look.

I don't know what kind of wood it is but it sure is beautiful and your turning is fantastic.



Anything is possible IF you don't know what you are talking about.

Tim, seriously nice job on this one. I have been experimenting with some wing turnings too. I really like your design on this one. Awesome.
