Maple - Spalted


Spalting in wood is a result of specific types of fungi in the process of wood decay, which is always unique; no two pieces will be exactly the same. It may show as contrasting light and dark colors adjacent to each other, and most notably, brown and black lines (known as zone lines) running through the wood. These lines can range from one or two running down a board to something resembling contour lines drawn by a drunken mapmaker.

As is the nature of burl and spalted burl blocks, there are possibilities of small voids, bark inclusions and/or delamination that can influence the finished product. This cannot be controlled by the seller. If this is a problem for the buyer they may want to contact the seller before purchase.

All wood blocks except for Ringed Gidgee are polymer stabilized.
