Spalted Maple Pencell Holder


A pencell holder with small paper clip draw made of Spalted Maple.  The front and back are the Spalted Maple and the middle is red oak.    Spalting is any form of wood coloration caused by fungi. Although primarily found in dead trees, spalting can also occur in living trees under stress. Although spalting can cause weight loss and strength loss in the wood, the unique coloration and patterns of spalted wood are sought by woodworkers. This piece was so soft a friend just gave it to me to see if I could do anything with it.  I used a high gloss Polyurethane to tighten up the softness. A very striking piece
