Thread: black spots on maple bowl

  1. #16
    Interesting and thanks Robo and David for your replies. That would explain why it is so tenacious. But if itís mold why would it only be on the sides of the bowl and not the bottom (or the inside)?

    I know it is frustrating but wood is wood. On the soft maple species I have seen this many times. I seal it with seal coat , then finish it it seams to help it somewhat. but you could always stain it or play around with some type of coloring

    I've turned quite a bit of both local sugar (hard) maple and soft (silver and red). I far perfer sugar maple and avoid the softer maples unless there is spectacular ambrosia, spalting, or other attractions.
