One of our maples went down in the storm last night and I salvaged a few pieces. A couple years ago I took down a good size limb from this tree and it was nicely spalted. You can see some of it in my projects.
Looks like this batch is only lightly spalted and mostly in the heartwood. Here I’m removing the bark with a drawknife.
