I LOVE spalted wood. Funny story when I first started, I was buying a bunch of poplar from a guy and he threw in about 100 bd ft of this poplar that was all purple, black lines, etc, said it was moldy and bad, but if I wanted it, I could have it. I didn’t know what spalted was, I took it because I thought it looked cool and I could make some smaller boxes, etc out of it. Anyhow, I get home and start googling it, and come to find out it was called spalted, and it was worth way more than regular wood, lol. It had a really bright purple color to it, with really good lines. I’ve only run across that color one other time and it wasn’t near as vivid.
