Talking Three spalted walnut projects.

I made these a little while back. The Bowl is 3" high and almost 6" across at the top. The earrings & pendant are about 1 1/4" long. The watch and holder are from Steve Good, thanks Steve.

Very nice Merle. I love the wood.

I am always curious about finishing. What was your finish?

Wow - the pieces are beautiful, and I totally LOVE the wood! I'm intrigued by the bracelet and think it's something my (very trendy) daugther would like - I may just give that a try if I can find some outstanding wood!

Very nice. I also like the ear rings and the bracelet...looks like you did a glue up onthe bracelet. How thick is it and was it hard to cut on the scroll saw?

Thanks for the comments. My finish was 50/50 BLO and mineral spirits, then I finished with Minwax spar varnish on the bowl. The finish on the jewelry and watch is wipe on poly. The bracelet has a 1/8" center layer across the grain for reinforcement. Overall thickness of this bracelet is 3/4". I even cleaned out the worm holes and worked the finish into them. With the wood being spalted it cut very easily.
