Like Spalted Maple, Spalted Beech is not technically a species of Beech or a type of figure, but is highly sought after for the great character it adds to an otherwise ordinary board. Spalting is a beautiful imperfection caused by a fungus in the early stages of decay while in log form. The dark, contrasting lines and streaking that add such a unique quality are created when the fungus begins to attack the wood. If the wood is salvaged early enough and dried, the fungus is killed in the kiln drying process and the board should still be stable with minimal punky areas.
