Spalted Burl Body

Recommended Posts

1.5' (or is it '') inches, anyway

of a beutiful spalted burl (body;1 piece) with a buckeye top;

whenever i use burls or spalted wood, i smother it in epoxy and drown it in laquer; this was no exeption;

i considered it a sucess, beutiful body with no raised/low spots; it was hanging on the wall until i built an appropiate neck (which turned out to be 2 - .5' gabon and a tapered center strip of bubinga(not important))

well i dont know what happened, it looks like my wood shrivelled inside and or seperated from the finish;

its in a lil laquer cacoon; because there is (basically) no cracks in the finish (slight relief crack in the lower horn) but ive never heard of this;

did it just keep absorbing everything? theres more than a good chance it was partially green, but nothing worse than ive suceeded with before; just never a full body;

did i do something taboo or is there a way to prevent this

i took it as alesson to keep my spalts thin.
