This is my first attempt at turning a bowl. It was basically rotten firewood I salvaged because of the spalting. I have been told it is Spalted Hackberry Crotch wood. The wood was so rotten I used a spray lacquer finish that turned out to be more work than it was worth, and still didnt come out as planned. But the I thought the bowl still had potential. Its small, but its mine !! All comments are welcomed !!
