I found this when I was splitting firewood. You never know what’s in there.

We don’t have a woodburning stove but sometimes I think I should get one just for the firewood excuse. Nice find!

That’s why I love cutting my own wood. Christmas in every log! Great find.

That would make a couple of gorgeous small bowls.

I have about 3 cords of that stuff I’m going to burn it.

I was looking my wood pile over this morning and 3 cords of spalt wood may be an exaggeration but I bet there is a cord of unsplit blocks some of them pretty big that show a lot of spalt on the ends. If anyone is interested I will help you load your long bed pickup for $100 it is worth almost that to burn. There is more of the same blow down tree that I left to rot in the woods because I had no use for more wood. My wood land was poorly managed or unmanaged for at least 40 years before I owned it so it is loaded with trees that need to be salvaged so if anyone has need for wood especially maple in various stages of decay let me know.

My wife gets a kick out of my snooping thru the wood chunks one last time, Just gotta keep that one piece! I’d love to take a couple off your hands, but I’m a ways away; nice to see you look for a way to use it before it’s lost to rot. Best of luck!

A beautiful piece of wood. You’re right, you don’t ever know until you look.
