« Part 41: Walnut and resin Part 42 of 50 for 50 - turning 50 as I turn 50 series Part 43: Kept from the ashes »

I saved this from a friend’s firewood pile in August. When I roughed out the blank on the band saw, I could see there was a bit of spalting, but I was pleasantly surprised with the extent and beauty of the spalting when I turned it. 6” diameter, sanding sealer then Ack’s abrasive paste.

I am now extra bummed that almost all the birch had been split and I could only come up with two blanks from the whole pile.
