Spalted Maple Burl HF *PIC*

Andy DiPietro
>This one was a challenge. It was spalted and 3/4 dry. I soaked in a bucket of water for a month. Turn it and slurry sanded the outside with Waterlox. I hollowed it with my new Don Derry Laser Hollowing Tools. This made the difficult task of hollowing semi-dry wood do-able. The piece finished up at 8" Dia. x 8"High x 1/8" thick. I rounded the bottom more like an egg shape. All comments are welcome.

Thanks
Andy DiPietro
