A highly figured spalted chestnut bowl. This was turned from timber felled in North Wales by Rob at https://www.agmtreesurgery.co.uk/ .The bowl is 17cm in diameter and 7cm deep. Spalting is any form of wood coloration caused by fungi. Although primarily found in dead trees, spalting can also occur in living trees under stress. Although spalting can cause weight loss and strength loss in the wood, the unique coloration and patterns of spalted wood are sought by woodworkers.
I prefer to, when possible, turn wood so that some of the original character of the "log" used is retained. I never buy prepared wood blanks which have been machined to produce as perfect a piece as possible. I almost entirely use found or donated or reclaimed timber. The bowl is finished using my own beeswax polish. I make the polish using beeswax supplied to me by a friend who keeps bees on our allotments
