  • 3/30/21 - We finished what was hopefully the last part of the forum upgrade we started earlier this month, the rebuilding of all of the permissions. In our testing everything seems to be working correctly but if you have any problems please post in the "Forum Technical Support" forum and we will take a look at it. You will also see a few changes with the main forum index. We have moved the AAW Member Forums to their own group and the Marketplace Forums to their own group. This simplified the permissions configuration for the forums and hopefully it will make the forums a little easier to naviagate. Thanks!

1916 spalted maple.

1916 spalted maple.

Completed 10/12/2020. I'm getting really "gun shy" of purchasing spalted woods. I just purchased two very nice looking spalted maple blanks, and both of them were unusable.....an expensive mistake!!!!! The trouble is evaluating blanks from pictures. The best method is to inspect endgrain for torn grain from the saw......but, this is not always evident on photos........This one, however, turned out nicely. 9 3/4 x 2 3/4. Originally, it was 16% mc, and took 6 mo after roughing to stabilize. It sold fairly quickly.
What a beautiful spalted bowl Odie! Really like your design of the bowl and the finish is outstanding. Well done indeed!
