Glad to have mold?

Picked up a couple logs from a construction site a couple years ago. Noticed some mold was already growing on the blanks, so I wrapped them in a plastic bag and kept them moist. 6 months ago I took the moldy logs out and let them air dry.

Made a wall thickness error, but opted to keep it. The spalting is amazing. I cant wait to turn the other half of the log

Spalted wood is beautiful when you can capture it at that right moment before it goes punky. Great job!

Looks like a bowl from FWW when they brought out examples of people starting to use spalted woods. Very nice and well proportioned. I have had good luck with putting a log or half log on its end in the shade and covering the top with shavings. Keeping the log in a plastic bag leads to more mold than I like to work with.
