Very nice indeed not a bad days work there :) . I especially like the third bowl, the way you've got the pattern of the spalting radiating out from a point around the sides of the bowl is very effecive.

Not exactly Jenx, the start of a long line of similar on order.

Something that I've been aiming at for two reasons JT,
1. to get that effect if possible.
2. to maximize the log wood.

So far have got away with most rough green blanks, just a couple out of 20 or so that are showing splits from the core wood.

Yes Paul, excepting they are from some branch lengths that I did not have time to 'blank up' and were just left outside.
I noted that the spalting was getting too much of a hold and hurriedly rough turned them in November.

It never actually stopped Andrew :) some was not for public consumption and just a few bits that were, were much of a muchness and just found their way into the Gallery, a fair bit of metal turning work interupted the wood flow for a while in December.

Hiya Chas. are you proving a point or something, they are the bees knees of spalting and turning that in my short time I have seen.
Jeez you must check the spalting process every hour to get it at such a perfect time, it seems to me that if you left that timber for another 10 mins. it's beauty would not be the same. the real artist is showing. REgards Boysie.

Pure serendipity in this instance Eugene, three 1mtr lengths of branch material that I did not have time or energy to convert at the time of collection, just got dumped at the rear of my greenhouse on a large mound of lawn moss, noted one day that there was a rainbow selection of differing fungi that on investigation indicated that it looked just on borderline salvageable, so followed a couple of days bandsawing and frantic rough turning to halt its progress.
