The Pecan looks interesting, is it spalted or is that normal? Board looks awesome!

Are the squares just on the surface or did you go through the board thickness, like a cutting board? I am getting ready to make one and my friend made a superficial surface one and the squares popped out when it got hot! LOL

I built it like a cutting board. It’s a true end grain chess board.
The pecan was kind of pecky and that’s where the sapwood starts, of stops … depending on which way you’re going.

So, just read an article on spalting and, yes. The pecan is spalted
