maple is technically not a particular type of maple species but
refers to maple that is in the process of rotting and has a bunch of
fungi in the wood. The fungi makes pen-like black lines in the wood
and results in some unique looking figure. This Spalted Maple came from a saw mill in South-Central
Pennsylvania. The saw mill owner collects unique primo one-of-a-kind
pieces of wild looking woods for me.
Sycamore tree, often called an American plane tree or buttonwood
tree, can grow to a massive size and grows in riparian and wetland
areas. Sycamore wood has a rather plain appearance with some flecks.
However, when the wood becomes spalted it becomes quite attractive.
Spalted wood is wood that is in the process of rotting and has a
bunch of fungi in the wood. The fungi makes lines pen-like black
lines, in Sycamore, and results in some wild looking figure.
The Spalted Sycamore
I use has lots of pen-like black lines and came from a saw mill in
South-Central Pennsylvania. This particular saw mill owner collects
unique primo one-of-a-kind pieces of wild looking woods for me. This
particular piece provides a nice contrast to the Spalted Maple.
