Is there anyway to tell where the figured wood will be in a board without cutting into it?
I got some cherry for some end tables, and when I cut the aprons, I found some lovely figure on the edge of the boards. It’s only an inch thick, but I thought I might make some picture frames with it.
The boards I have left are about 9 inches and I’ve hit the edges with a block plane, but there is nothing there. Could it be inside? Is there anyway to find it by looking at the face of the boards?
Are there any general tips for finding figured wood in the stacks at my hardwood dealer?
