    Stabilized Spalted Dogwood

    Spalted, ambrosia... I call it wood

    Guy I work with called and said hey, the city cut this tree down... I saw something worth saving. Another co-worker wanted some so dropped two pieces off for him. We shall see.

    Spalting and Color

    Hello all, I turned a spalted maple pen and noticed, only after turning, that the bottom portion, along the spalting line was a slightly different color. More muted but still interesting. I am used to larger color differences with spalting. I went to my copy of Understanding Wood by R...

    Lucky wood find: revisited

    I posted pictures of the top of an oak tree that fell on my shed a while back. http://www.penturners.org/forum/f178/lucky-wood-find-120490/ This is the first thing I've made out of it after microwave drying and stabilizing. Sorry for the poor photo quality. C&C welcome!

    My first posted pen

    I'm still working on my photography skills, but this pen is a spalted two-tone afzelia burl from Bad Dogs. It's also my first FP, and is one I may be keeping for myself. CA Finish, 6 coats, then buffed with a little carnauba wax on a wheel.

    Spalted Maple Broadwell

    I turned this Broadwell Art Deco Gold T/N and Chrome pen today. I used a spalted maple blank that I have had for a while and finally decided to turn. I stabilized it before I turned it. It had quite an interesting spalt pattern. Each line was a double line which gave it a nice effect. Let...

    Lucky find

    I went for a hike in the woods of Jacksonville, TX and found a hackberry log that looked like it was spalted on the end. I took it home and dried it. After it was dry I cut it up into blanks and to my surprise it was crazy looking. So I made a Majestic out of one of the blanks. It was a...
