Cheers Mike I guessed that might be the case, but whilst looking for ideas online, saw someone had made a pin from Spalted beech and hence the question before I went ahead.Why would you want to roll your food with a fungus ridden rolling pin? I like spalted beech but I wouldn't put it anywhere near food.
Please can I have your name and address in case i die. Just asking for the wife.Personally I would not be the least bit concerned if the wood is sound enough and not too far gone and punky.
I have been making and using spalted beech plates, bowls, spatulas and spoons for a few decades now quite happily
If you are intereste there are a number of studies and articles on spalted timber by the AAW (American Association of Woodturners) one author is a PhD university scientist who has made it her main interest.Hi all. Found some lovely Spalted Beech and wondered if it is a suitable wood to make another rolling pin?
