Im curious as well about this technique. Is there an end thats going to get cut off any way that you can use for a trial piece. In theory it should work. Moist conditions allow the fungi that cause spalting to thrive so by displacing the water…....... I just put mine in a heated dehumidified room.

Have your say...
