Spalted Hard Maple Lumber BMSM17
2 beautiful double black line spalt bookmatched pieces. Approximate panel dimension is 11 5/8” to 12 3/4” wide”. 35 1/8” long. A shy 1/2” thick. Kiln dried, skip planed on the reverse, finish planed on the fronts, RO sanded to 120 grit on the fronts. Small crack in one piece running between voids. Couple worm holes and voids- see pencil pictures. I made this lumber specifically to be used in cabinet/luthier applications but of course it can be used for many things.
The logs (old growth) were harvested about 6 years ago. They have been spalting for 6 years here in the Adirondacks before being milled in the late summer 2020. After milling, the lumber was air dried for about 3 months and then kiln dried to about 6.5% and then allowed to come slowly back up to around 9-10%. So this lumber has been in the works going on 7 years. A few days in your shop and it will be ready to use. I use this type of lumber for door panels but many have used it for other things. Unusual lumber for heirloom projects.
