Large spalted alder turned bowl
This sparked alder bowl has some really beautiful markings and would stand out in any table.
The bowl was turned by hand and finished it with high grade mineral oil.
Spalting occurs when a fungus enters the tree leaving territorial markings. This makes every piece completely unique.

Step 1: The Wash
Wash by hand your wooden product with water (soap is fine too)
Step 2: The Oil (once in 2 months)
The next morning, use your hands to apply a generous layer of vegetable oil to the sides, top, bottom, and any groove, grip, or handle. You don’t need puddles of oil on your board, just enough to cover the wood with an even coat
Step 3: Let it rest
Once you’ve covered the whole piece of wood with oil, you’ve created a barrier to help the wood retain moisture. You know what to do. On its side. Broad faces out. Let it sit overnight.
