Great book!!!

I'd love to get some of those little organisms to try creating my own colors.

Currently, I can spalt wood by sitting it on end onto the dirt and leave it there for months but it would be cool to have more control over the process. Smiley

not a big deal, except to her I guess, but her first name is spelled Seri (not Sara)

thanks Dwight. I guess I stand corrected. Not sure what to say other than  when I communicated with her via email about a month ago, She signed her emails as Seri C. Robinson. Her email address was seri.robinson@oregonstate.edu.

Well, I just found this which helps to clarify her name for me anyway.

It appears as though we are both correct. Smiley

Has anyone spalted their bowl blanks  using colored fungi growing on fallen dead trees?  Need more info.  I bought Sara's book, but i'm a dummie!

I'm one of the lucky people taking her class in July. Bought her book last week and find it fascinating and informative.
The class description says to bring wood that we want to Spalt, so I'm planning on taking my truck with a bed load of wood.

I highly recommend her book to anyone interested in the spalting process.

She said once that the only one that calls her Sara is her mom... One of the best demos I have ever seen because every thing I used to know about spalting was wrong.....

What's up with that is that photobucket has gone greedy and now wants you to pay them or your photos are gone. I'ts one thing to want some sort of payment for services rendered but how much  they want is where the "greed" part comes in.

Just load it thru this site.

I don't see a place that says get pic from my computer, or browse pics. Tried right clicking in the profile page where my pic should be   but that option doesn't come up.

Rick, go to your profile page and click on edit my profile and then options.

There you will see the place to choose file. You can then load right from your computer. You just need to keep the size small enough. It will tell you if it is too big.

I just did it for my photo as it used to be linked back to photo bucket. Thumbs Up

A quick post regarding the class at Marc Adams. Seri is everything you might expect and more! 
Her fungi which can be purchased from Northern spalting.com can Spalt wood sometimes in less than a month -and you end up with solid (not punky) wood.
Others have referenced her 8 part video with Mark Lindquist on YouTube. I'm not totally finished viewing but will tell you it is very engaging and full of information.
One day left in the class and we have all learned SO MUCH. As Robo-hippy says, everything I thought I knew about spalting was wrong.

During the 8 part series i learned there no set rules to turn a bowl.  Like Mark said  turn what makes you happy.   Seri even said when she turns a spalted bowl  if she sees the spalting being turned away she will stop turning, even if it means she cannot sand because the spalting is disappearing.  So  wall thickness is not as important as other aspects of your own personal preference.

How did your spalting attempts go?  Were you able to get color?  How long did it take?
