Wisteria is a plant that that is usually seen as a vine or as a shrub/bush, I suppose primarily in the South. It has beautiful purple/blue flowers that hang in grape-like clusters and can be seen in various home landscapes or in the wild. And it can grow to almost tree-like proportions….the one I removed in my back yard was 6” in diameter with a twisted trunk nearly 6 feet tall. So it is not a wood that is likely to be available commercially. Here are a few pieces showing the figure and grain of the pieces I cut. I’m not sure if it is spalted or not, but it looks pretty neat. It is a coarse grain, quite soft and light. I’ve made a small number of boxes and crosses from it that look pretty nice. The first photos are just the sawn wood and the darker ones are what it looks like when dampened with water to get an idea how it will finish. Just thought I’d share a few pictures of some wood that many will probably never see, unless you cut your own!
