Top of spalted magnolia. Legs of water oak cut from my back yard. The butterfly patch, made of oak for contrast, fortifies a slight crack in the stool top.

Looks great. How did that magnolia work. We have a lot down in Texas, mostly yard trees, and I have always wondered how it worked and if it was worth trying out.

Nicely done. I’ve never seen magnolia used in furniture before, and it is absolutely stunning.

Love the butterfly-joint detail, spalted look and finish, looks very warm.

Oyster: The magnolia worked soft like white pine. But I think that’s because it was spalted, beginning stages of rot. I have another small log of it thats not spalted. It’s dry but still quite heavy, feels dense and seems like it’s gonna be harder when I work it. I’m looking forward to getting into it.
