Got these two lovely pieces of spalted beech from Chris Williams today. Just hope they don't split while being worked.

Great looking blanks.  Those will be stunning when they're done.

Don't forget the mask Spalting is a fungus and can be nasty to inhale

I was turning a bowl from a piece of spalted birch years ago and ended up with a sinus infection. Gloops and cobalt make an excellent point.
