Some thirty years ago, I built a short drop schoolhouse clock that my young son always seemed to like.
So when I came upon a tiger maple board with spalting, I was able to get enough good pieces to built this long drop and have the grain run around both the face and the sides. The picture shows just one side, but the spalting also shows upo on the other side as well. I think this type of spalting is reffered to as ambrosia, since the spalting is highly defined.
It was finished with golden oak danish oil for color and poly varnish to protect. Given as a Christmas gift
Sort of interesting to have both the tiger and spalting together. Anway, my son and his wife where delighted with this one of a kind clock.
