The Mason Dixon Woodworkers bought some popular lumber from a local sawmill operator. We picked up the wood and it was stored in our material storage building.
As we started to use it I noticed that a lot of the boards had spalting but even stranger it had some mineral streaks that were pink. I’ve never seen pink before.
We were cutting some of the planks today and this is a cut-off piece that I plan to use to make a few pen blanks.
On one side of the board it seems that the pink is where a crack is present. I don’t think the pink is a result of the crack because there is also pieces with pink color that there is no cracks present.
It’s a very unique color.
Some kids are going to get some unique toys.
