Freshly cut Norfolk Pine *PIC*

>At the request of a customer who likes the golden look of the unspalted pieces, have been turning a few pieces within a few days of cutting where spalting has not had a chance to start. Some within a matter of hours. As a week-end turner, however, this kind of efficiency does not happen often. This piece is 12-1/2" dia. x 8" height. Fortunately, there has been time to wait for the right opportunity when notice of a tree coming down matches my ability to be around for the harvest. This piece has been soaked for about 6-8 times but is not finished yet.
