Spalted hollow form on spindle base with finial

The hollow form is made from a piece of spalted maple that has a void.  The spalting gives it a one of a kind look that is created by nature.  Spalting is caused by a fungus that grows in the wood, once dried the fungus dies off leaving its mark.  The spindle base is made from a piece of black cherry.  The finial is made from 2 pieces of cherry with a small piece of spalted maple in between.
