If you stabilize your wood, it will impregnate it all the way through and make it usable for turning. Someone in your group probably does stabilization. See if you can hook up with him/her. You have some beautiful spalted wood there. I'm sure you can make some beautiful stuff with that.

As a "novice" turner, glad to see this, showing the whole process -- issues, process, and design changes on the fly. Other videos talk about it, but it's satisfying to actually see some of the same issues I'm having and how someone else dealt with it.

Iv been a wood Turner for over 38 years. With timber as dry as you have soak the log in boiled linseed oil for a couple of weeks then you'll be fine. Oil stops the flackyness. Good luck.

One of my neighbors asked me to turn a dozen or so "Trees" for Christmas presents for his family and after a few practice tries, I ended up with a pretty easy technique to turn them. One of the first "practice" versions and two of the 'more like finished products' are shown on this page of my site... www.plusaf.com/woodshop/20-trees.htm

The photo and link in the lower right corner of this page www.plusaf.com/woodshop/22-fashion-accessories.htm shows what I made for a craft show for last November. I modified the "leaves" to have a flat area that I could drill in pairs around the rim to insert earring hooks. I sold a smaller version (about 12 pairs holder) at the craft fair. Enjoy!

Not sure why but I was envisioning you turning a triangular shaped tree, transitioning from unturned to a point and maybe a few tiers. Maybe even preparing the triangle by flattening the 3 sides..I really think that would be very cool.

A piece with that much spalting, treat with a wood hardener, leave for a couple of days ,check for soft areas, treat again ,,,, no a safety note, spalting is a fungus growing thro the wood ,,that dust on your lungs , not good, scrapers make a lot of dust,,, keep safe,,. Regards Alf

Brad Vietje Astronomy

Glad you stuck with it and ended up with a great little tree. Given your skill with the skew and the spindle gouge, you'll find the more you use them, and the less you use carbide scrapers on spalted wood, the better.

When working with spalted wood it helps to use wood hardener, you can get it at most home improvement stores or online

Need to stabilise the spalted ash in the vacuum pot or it just going to keep breaking out on you. I use a vacuum pump, an old pressure cooker and ronson wood stabiliser and it makes all the difference you need.

Question: with spalted wood", it can be turned without undergoing any treatment? I saw yours broke, but I assume you have had success turning spalted wood. Is there anything I should know about turning it or use of other tools on it? I have so far turned only one item ever... a few weeks ago, a wooden "club".

I just remembered where I heard about the Minwax wood hardener. Stephen Ogle made a video where he used it. Here is the link. ( youtu.be/jVhebsVpMOw)

Gil Grace

It's a shame the spalted ash didn't work out. I think it would have been beautiful. However this one looks great too, so no great loss. Minwax makes a wood hardener that might help stabilize punky wood. I think it is intended for rotted wood and it works well for that, but it might be worth a try on over spalted wood.

Really like the way this turned out, looks really classy. By the way, you tried really hard to get that star on top, sorry it didn't work out but look up Mike Peace and the trees he turned, he shows a way of turning the star and tree all in one piece. Merry Christmas.
