I’m a beginner, by the way, so bear with me…
About 3 years ago I got some scrap lumber from a trash pile at some new houses going up by my house. I’ve just recently started woodworking and have looked through it a little bit. I think that most of it is garbage for the fire this winter, but I made a picture frame out of a piece of it and wanted to make another one, so I was looking through it and found this:
I used a wet rag to see the color better.
It looks quite a bit different than all the other wood because of the gray streaks through it. Everything else I have is just yellowish in color.
Any help? If the gray color is spalting, does it keep spreading? Any particular finishing tips to bring out this color after I complete the picture frame?
