Northern Spalting exists as a focal point for all things spalted. Here you will find real, scientific information on spalting, DIY guides, lists of upcoming spalting events, and a menagerie of other spalting resources.
This website is run as an extension of the Applied Mycology Lab at Oregon State University. For more information on spalting research, to get involved, or to inquire about graduate study opportunities, please send an e-mail.
News / Site Concerns –
Guys!! I’ve been working with APHIS and VERY SOON I may be able to ship some of the spalting fungi (maybe all) within the continental United States. For more details as they develop, go here.
Turning program!! Thanks to a generous contribution by the fine ladies of Women In Turning (WIT), OSU is about to get a student lathe. We have the space to expand into an entire turning room, and need your help! Do you have a midi lathe perhaps sitting around that you no longer use (or something bigger)? What about old tools, glasses, face shields, or chucks? We’d LOVE to get donations of anything turning related for our students and really make this lathe room, and the associated turning classes (this means more workshops for you guys, too) a reality. If you have something you’d like to donate to the new Student Turning Center, please drop me an e-mail. And thank you!
The next set of workshops is scheduled! See here for more details.
