The term 'spalting'covers a wide range of characteristics arising from fungal attack of the timber during the early stages of decay (the decay is halted when the timber is dried to a level at which there is insufficient moisture in the wood to enable the fungi to live).
We have photographed a selection of blanks to give an indication of the likely level and types of spalting within the blanks on offer. The pictures show representative samples.
