Great work ! I've seen lots of spalted maple, can't say I've ever seen spalted oak - looks fantastic. Reason I haven't used spalted maple in my builds, is that it seems to have alot of punky soft spots - does spalted oak have this in your experience ?

I've done alot of spalted oak and never once had a soft spot 馃憣馃幆馃憡 I only use either birch oak or Hawthorn as I find them to be the hardest and strongest if seasoned and dried correctly 馃挭馃憣馃幆 here's some of my other spalted oak nattys aswell 馃憣馃幆 there's alot more but you can only attach 10 pics馃ぃ馃憤
