I’ve had this piece of spalted maple sitting around for about 10 years. Because of the odd shape I didn’t know what to do with it. I made a bunch of little boxes like this but from walnut for a friend and then saw this board on the shelf and made one more. Size is to fit two decks of cards. Still enough left to make a few more as long as the grain holds out as I go through it.

That is a fabulous piece of spalt there. In today’s world I imagine at first look a lot of woodworkers would see it as a fractal burn. Mother Nature made a little tornado design for you, and it’s AWESOME.

Made into a nice box, good eye for seeing it, and thanks for posting it.
