Spalted maple refers to a type of wood that has undergone a unique and visually appealing transformation caused by fungi. Spalting occurs when certain fungi attack the living tree, causing localized decay. This process creates intricate patterns and color variations within the wood, resulting in a highly sought-after and distinctive appearance.

The spalting process typically leaves dark contrasting lines, streaks, or patches across the light-colored maple wood, creating a marbled or "tiger stripe" effect. The exact appearance and patterns can vary greatly, making each piece of spalted maple unique.

Woodworkers and artisans value spalted maple for its aesthetic appeal and use it in various applications, including furniture, cabinetry, flooring, and decorative items. It adds a touch of natural beauty and uniqueness to woodworking projects, making it a popular choice among craftsmen and enthusiasts.

However, it's worth noting that the decay caused by the fungi weakens the wood, making it less structurally stable compared to non-spalted wood. As a result, spalted maple is often used for decorative purposes rather than load-bearing or structural components.

Overall, spalted maple is a captivating wood variety cherished for its striking appearance and distinctive patterns created through the natural spalting process.
