This research intends to explain the elements involved in the high valuation of spalted wood in the wood turning market.  This research will be used for thesis and publication.  This is the first study done about how and why woodworkers use spalted wood.  This will be one of the first studies done about the importance of wood turning as an add value activity around the world.

In order to obtain information for this study, an online survey is launched.  Woodturners and woodworkers that are associated to woodturning/woodworking guilds are considered in this study. The participation is voluntary.  The survey consists of a questionnaire  available in the Qualtrics website.

Answering the questionnaire will take approximately 20 min.  The identity of the participants in the survey will not be known to the researchers.  Results will be made available for woodworking associations and woodworkers.  The participation is voluntary.  The participants can skip any question that they prefer not to answer.

Thank you so much for your participation and feel free to share it!
