    Check this out!

    We were cutting up some QS sycamore and came across this spalted piece. There is no finish on it - it is sanded to 1000 grit.

    You would lose the effect of the spalting on a small scale like a pen. I see a box top or two. That spalted wood is dangerous to work with, the fungus will mess you up :XXpuke: :bduh: Send it to me and I'll keep it so it can't harm anyone :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Honestly Honey, that will cost around $100 $150 $200, and I need a few more tools.

    Heard from a client..."If I had your tools and experience...I could do it myself"

    I suspect that we'll give it general shape, round over the edges and use it as it. It's too pretty to cut up.
