It’s workshop week here at OSU–the one time of the year that we throw open the doors to the Applied Mycology Lab and run workshops on fungal pigments, DIY spalting, and turning spalted wood!
One of the best parts of the two-day turning workshop is that participants get to go through our massive supply of spalted wood and pick out any and all goodies they want to turn. Check out what someone selected today! Finished photos of at least one of the pieces will come tomorrow, hopefully.
The one below here shows what the log looked like on the outside. The best part about spalting, IMHO, is that the logs can look just grey and weathered on the outside, and can be a huge rainbow of colors on the inside!
The pinks and greens on this are just stunning.
Look how deep that pink vein runs!
Small pieces cut from our larger log. Pink and green, with smatterings of black zone lines throughout!
