My 12 year old daughter milled (in the kitchen) this severely spalted (with chocolate) yellow(cake)heart blank. It is about 4.5”x4.5”x18”.
The “spalting” is eerily reminiscent of chocolate icing mixed with white icing, and occurred with the help of my 3 youngest “lumberbakers”, who last week watched many episodes of “cake boss” on netflix while snowed in from school.
The saw blade appears to be a 24 tooth “creamy white” and the Kerf (see measurement photo) is a little hefty at 1/4”, hence the sawdust (DC is not hooked up yet to this machine, although voracious sucking/inhaling sounds were heard shortly after it was revealed).
I can’t take credit. The concept for this piece was by my wife, milling was my 12 year old daughter, and spalting was done by all 3 lumberkids (photo3).
Best lumber I have ever tasted…
