Spalted Maple Bowl

Well, I keep trying to get a clear pic of this bowl, but it keeps coming out fuzzy. This'll have to do!

Spalted Maple bowl from a maple my in-laws cut down last year. It's been sitting in my driveway aparently spalting ever since. It's 9" dia and 4 1/2" tall.

I put my usual lacquer finish on it, but had some trouble with this one. It seems that the spalted parts really absorbed the lacquer and left some dull patches.

I may end up waxing it before I give it to my MIL for mother's day.

I usually wipe on the first two coats while it's still on the lathe. On this one, though, since the lacquer kept soaking in to the spalted areas, I rubbed in about 10 more coats, then tried spraying a couple. I still couldn't get it to build on a few spots, so it's been sitting for a few days waiting for me to wax it.

WOW!!! That's incredible! Very nice work... I've never turned a dime much less a piece of wood... I may have to try my hand at it some day.

bOOk. What kind of lacquer? I recently bought a liter of the original high VOC. Stinky but I liked it. The store had one more left. They may not realize they won't be getting any more! If you used water based how does it compare?? thanks. Ron.

Wow, how did I miss this thread? That's an awesome looking bowl. The outer profile is very unique and looks fantastic. I think you did a fantastic job.

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