Spalted Maple natural live edge wood slabs (50 slabs):
If you are looking for rustic beauty and unique character, Spalted Maple is the perfect choice. Spalted Maple is not its own species of Maple or a type of figure, but it looks as one. This wood is highly sought after for the stunning imperfection caused by fungus in the log or tree form. Its dark, contrasting lines and variety of colors add such an eye-catching appeal to an ordinary board. As long as the wood is harvested in time and dried properly, the fungus will be killed in the kiln and the board should be stable with minimal punky areas. Working with this wood is much like any regular lumber and if the area is softer with the later stages of spalting, it is best to reinforce it with resin or epoxy. It may require a bit more effort to work with spalted lumber, but the effort is worth it!
