hardening spalted maple

Paul Hammer
>Hi All,

I have been turning some great big leaf maple burl. The last piece i turned was a spherical vessel with spalting falling of the sides onto some great curl. This piece also has a blackwood collar. The problem i came into was when i it came to finishing. The spalted maple was VERY soft and the blackwood collar was hard. Is there a product out there that i can put on the maple after i turn the outside that will harden it, so i can turn the inside. I am also alcohol drying. I have tryed epoxy , but the to dont mix well.

Happy turning
