Spalted Gum

This is spalted gum I rough turned last November. It measures 8-1/2" X 3-1/2" with 5/16" walls. Finish is BLO and bees wax. I have not buffed it yet. Thanks for looking.

Nice wood Eugene, once I learn the ropes of turning I hope I can get some nice chunks of wood like you guys.

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Thanks for all the kind words. We cut that tree in December of 08. I turned several bowls in the winter and spring before it spalted. In fall of 09 I was surprised to see what it looked like. I like it better spalted, it is just a bit more difficult to work with.

Thanks again for the kind words and for looking.
