I got my hands on some nice 1/4” spalted maple, so I laminated it to 1/4” walnut to create 1/2” thick stock to use for a box. The diamond pattern on the top panel was glued up from strips of the 1/4” maple and walnut glued up alternately, cut crosswise, then reglued alternately again. I should have selected the walnut for the diamonds more carefully, because I was looking for a little more contrast with the maple. At any rate, it turned out okay, and I’ve got a lot more of the spalted maple to experiment with. :-)
Size is about 5” x 8”, and the finish is my usual BLO, buffed and waxed on the 3-wheel system.
