Additional Information:  This Spalted Oak is from a species of oak called White Oak. White Oak is native to North America in the eastern and central United States and eastern and central Canada. Spalted Oak is technically not a particular type of Oak species but refers to Oak 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.

A 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 Oak.
