The first two pics are of a bowl previously on here, now with a beeswax finish put on with a dremel

The last two are pics of a bowl using the same wood and finish, i spalted it myself by putting a beer and wood shavings in a bag for couple weeks, it worked pretty good, but i had it in too long so it rotted and a piece popped off while i was turning,
this bowl was actually turned between centers, because i got bored lol
Beeswax is my “lazy finish”, because its readily available, and its extremely easy to apply
any guesses on the wood?? someone said it might be a gum, but i dont really know what that is

should of had five pics, but im having trouble uploading them…

It’s a little hard to tell what wood it is from the pics. I’ll bet they look really pretty in person. I don’t think anyone would mind if you repost a project that was unfinished before. And, i learned something here today, beer and sawdust make for a good spalter.

Nice job. Thanks for the spalting idea.

Keep it up.

One beer for me, two for the bowl. Or is it the other way around?

You’ll have to use unpasteurized beer for that- otherwise the yeast (a fungus) will have been killed. Yet another use for Coors.
