Put this together for an artist wanting a unique frame for one of her projects. The distinctive coloring in this maple frame is caused by beetles that make their way into the wood while it is growing. A fungus is responsible for the blue, gray and brown streaks and decorative patch work that accompany each tunnel and adjacent wood. The streaks and patch work add a unique look to this hardwood without affecting its structural integrity. The kiln drying process stops the infestation. Tricky business getting the trails to cooperate.
