Spalted Maple

Finally had some time at the lathe in the shop...this one is spalted maple, 8" wide and about 3" tall. Finish so far is just one coat of danish oil, but more finish sanding and some more oil are in its future. The wood was punky and I almost gave up on it. Originally the blank was just over 16" square and the 4" or so were to far gone to save as was the other side of the log. Still this one has some great spalting in it and I was very happy to get back at the lathe.
