Another Spalted Turn

Turned another bowl from the mystery spalted firewood. Consulted a local expert on the subject, it’s not eucalyptus that’s for sure. It doesn’t have any distinctive odour. So a pale quite light timber that turns reasonable well.
I was quite pleased with the shape of this piece. As always the shape was determined to some degree by what I started with. The opening is smaller and I guess that points toward future hollow forms.
This one is finished with the usual Ubeaut’s EEE and Shellawax. Thought about a lid this time but that may have to wait for another attempt.
