    Some serious family issues have kept me away.

    But, if anyone has some spalted white wood, I would be interested, spalted oak, maple, sycamore,

    Sorry, I was not ignoring anyone.

    Tony, I'm fine. It's just I've reached that stage in life where I'm attending more funerals than weddings.

    I've been doing that for 20 years now. All my childhood friends are gone. Suicide, drug overdoses, car crashes, alcoholism, you name it.

    @Alan Sweet Here’s what I cut up this morning. Black marks show drying cracks (all air dried wood). They can be glued or turned away

    First two photos show end grain on each end and third is of other side. Various stages of splat along with bug tunnels.
    All 3x3x12. Except where marked

    $9 ea + shipping
    I can get 4 in a Medium FlatRate box

    *sealed ends after taking photos *
