In my last round of processing, I cut some Hackberry into slabs and noticed some spalting and thought---Hmmmm. Well that got the better of me so I cut a round blank. I ended up with a nice bowl-- 9 x 3 inch bowl with lots of interesting patterns, with some worm activity interspersed. Finish is lacquer that I applied as a friction polish.
Big line in the side is a large bark inclusion.

Lot of character there. Not sure about the bug question, I have had more than one bowl drying and the grubs were still making saw dust. Just seems to stop, maybe they die, maybe they turn or are turning to beetles.... I figured as the wood dryed they died. My understanding is most grubs cant deal with dry wood.

H-I haven't had any problems with the worms/grubs after the fact. Have wondered about that too, but no bowls with sawdust piles---yet.
If it arises, likely will use a good plastic bag and mothballs.
