Default Rotten Eggs!

Well, we call it spalt but is is rot!
Here are some spalted maple eggs I turned yesterday. One is in traditional spindle orientation and the others are all turned in cross grain mode.
All turned between centers, nubs sawed off a tad long, carved off with knife and then hand sanded to 400.
I only have one coat of MO (mineral oil) on them at the time of the pic last night.
I like the figuring on the cross grain eggs best. Will recoat and buff when dry.

Boy you must have some strange alien chickens to lay those kind of eggs.... a bowl of those on a kitchen counter would be a real pretty accent.... good job, perfect shape.

The practical joker in me wants to put a few in a friends egg carton when staying over for a night just to see the reactions when they go to make everyone breakfast.

A fine eggample of your turning abilities. ;)
