Spalted Hackberry - Bagolaro fiorito

By the Way, i decided to put on lathe a piece of Spalted Hackberry,
which is really common tree around here,
i can get it as much as i want.

i really like this wood when get some spalted...
To do spalting i proceed like this: when i cut trunk into pieces i put one piece above the other and a piece of cardboard between 'them, pile all up in a cold and humid place.
I cover with some organic stuff like "humus" on it
Better is to cut wood end of autumn so it could  helps grow fungos during winter...
that what i done to make hackberry take some spalted..
Sure there are a lot of way to do that, indeed...
I'm all ears....
