What did you like, or dislike about the blank
[edit]

This wood is beautiful.  Cut wet, it spalted on the shelves in my shop.  The grain is all over the spectrum.  It cuts easy, sands easy, and takes finish easy. I liked everything about it.


Blank needs be stabilized?
[edit]

Only if it happened to turn punky... otherwise, no.

Wood known to be hazardous to touch or skin?[edit]

Not hazardous to touch.


Wood particles or dust known be hazardous to inhale?
[edit]

It's pine, so some may not like the dust.

Tool you would not recommend to use with? (gauge, carbide cutter tool, flap sander, etc.) ?[edit]

Your choice...A skew will make your sanding even easier than it is already.


Any special care for drilling?
[edit]

No.  It will drill quickly.


Any special care for sanding (Dry/Wet, slow speed)?
[edit]

I wet sanded the last few grits.

Finish used?[edit]

Danish Oil and CA will do wonders for it.

Any problems applying it?[edit]

None.

Any problems after Blank finished  (Ie. cracks,cloudy, dull finish ...?[edit]

None.

Use polishing or buffing?[edit]

When cured, buff w/EEE, WD, Renwax...

Additional information you like to add:[edit]

This wood would be great, sliced in any direction... with, diagonal, or across, grain. When it's spalted it's just plain gorgeous.
