The darker spots (not the bark inclusions) are fine black lines close together. Nice redial figure with Birds eye and lace. The figure really comes alive with it has a finish on it.

I love birdseye maple. Not sure about spalted maple though. Why don’t you send the piece to me and I’ll let you know if I like it.

Pure junk! Just ship that crap over to KY and I’ll dispose of it for you. You don’t want that stuff infecting your other woods!

I agree with Dan, if you need a place to dispose of this stuff there is a spot in Michigan that will recycle it for you ;)

Those pieces have such fantastic potential. I think I turned their cousin:

Spalted Maple Platter

Once you get past the softer-wood issue of splated wood, the results can be beautiful.
