Spalted Maple Spalted Maple is one of the great American exotic hardwoods. It is one of our favorites because the entire shop has a beautiful sweet smell when we work with it. Spalted Maple occurs when a lot of moisture gets into the wood and chemically changed its color. The result is amazing and we say its Mother natures way of showing off. Guitar makers love this wood, and it can be found on many expensive pieces of furniture. It is an amazing wood! All of our wood plates are finished as the wood grew on the tree. No stains or dyes. Just the beautiful wood as nature intended it. No two plates are ever alike and the color may change slightly over the years because they are real wood! They are finished with a super hard clear finish for unlimited durability!
It's like furniture for your walls!
All of our plates are shipped finished, and ready to use! "We never charge for the finish"!
