Nice stuff!

I can't seem to find the patience to get finishes like that.
What do you mean I can't do that?

Looks great!

What brand of chisels are you using? Steel or carbide? They must be some kind of sharp to cut all the different grain types and directions, not to mention knots!

Some of both. I can't get by yet without a lot of sanding. Some guys online can cut smooth enough to eliminate several grits of paper. I'm not there yet but, I am learning to sharpen the gouges better to get nicer peeling cuts..

Spalting

Postby Dieselrider » Wed Jul 04, 2018 7:37 pm

is when wood starts to break down (Rot) caused by bacteria and fungus. Usually this is when logs would get rejected by the saw mill or at the very least down graded significantly in price. In maple the spalting looks more grayish usually but in this white-ash bowl it takes on a more tanish look. Sure makes for some pretty bowls though.
