Silver Maple Block SM-245
2.3" x 2.3" x 15"
1.875 lbs.

This is a beautiful, heavily-spalted spindle of Texas-grown Silver Maple.  It has an overall light golden tone to the wood with a fine, even grain texture.  There is beautiful zone spalting that changes the wood tone to a darker shade of brown in the spalted zones.  There is plentiful black-line spalting on the exposed faces. 

The grain runs long and more-or-less straight, parallel to the long axis of the spindle.  This wood has been fully air-dried to 10-12% moisture content.  The block is rough-sawn with some surface irregularities.  There may be a few bug boreholes present.  I've taken photos of all faces, so please scroll down below the first 3 photos to see more images.

This block has a few end-grain cracks that you may wish to secure with CA glue prior to turning.
