I had two, book-matched pieces of spalted, live edge maple left over from another box build that I just didn’t have the heart to throw in the burn pile (that happens quite often in the shop:-) So I had to come up with something to use them! It was my first time using live edge wood and I would love to use it again. A little tricky on the finishing part though. I regularly use Briwax as a final step and when it comes to the live edge it likes to build up. Anybody have any tips on finishing a live edge piece?
Once again the final outcome dictated the name. With the very prominent spalt line and the live edge the name just seemed to fit. Natures beautiful disaster.
Lid – Leopardwood, Bolivian Rosewood and Curly Maple
