I found a few pieces of spalted fiddle back maple in our firewood that we collected for heat last winter. The pieces were about 2’ long, cuvred and frankly twisted looking. It was’nt untill I ran them thru my 17” bandsaw did I discover the treasure with in!!! The mahogany top,bottom and cabriole legs were fron old door trim from a remodel. Notice the 5 bookmatched drawer fronts ! ! The pull out necklace slde has particularly stiking grain paterns. The drawers are also made of spalted maple as well. The style and rail sides have bookmatched panels as well as the slide out.

Wow!! I think I will check out my firewood and see if any of that is in mine.. NOT!!!!! Mine is all Oak and Pine. Well I guess I will just have to keep looking. Great look stuff. You did a great job on this project. Keep up the great work.

Glad you had the insight to check the wood before chucking it in the fire. That’s sharp!!!

Beautiful save. I really like the attention to detail with all the bookmatching. It amazes me to think of how many great pieces like this have literally gone up in smoke because there wasn’t someone with an eye like yours to see the potential.
