This bowl from a log that I obtained last year, cut, and sealed. Elm (longleaf-here) has such nice patterns, but oh so to hard to work as it tends to have tearouts and unexpected end grain. I did turn this to ~1/4 inch- chasing a bad spot, but let that go. Tried to shape it to accentuate the graining and the unexpected spalting.
9.75 x 3 inch, shellac/BLO/DNA .
Yes, some tool marks-- oh well, discretion said leave'em.

Great looking bowl; I use an awful lot of spalted maple and find that it becomes a sanding operation rather than a turning operation if the piece is too spalty (read puncky)...ken

Gorgeous looking bowl. Well done.

I love elm and chestnut, sad they are so difficult to find these days. I love the grain.
