spalted ambrosia maple saved from the stove
I was almost in tears today, lol while me and the hunting crew chopped firewood for the cabin. a very good friend owns a tree service company and dropped off this wood. its a red maple that with closer inspection was infested with ambrosia beetles at some point. I was able to take two really nice logs and this is what it produced. after sawing the log into chunks i noticed that it was also spalted in some spots or atleast that is what it looks like to me!
