Storing Spalt Maple

Recommended Posts

The fungi responsible for the spalting will continue to work until the wood moisture content drops below 20%. If you store the wood in a dry place allowing air to circulate around it, the fungi will eventually stop working. If the wood is very wet, you may consider sealing the endgrain with melted candle wax to help prevent a rapid loss of water which may cause checking.

Hey I was wondering if spalt can be stored? Say if you found a killer peice but were not able to start the project right away? If you didnt seal it or something doesnt the rotting get worse?


Yes, I sure hope it can be stored, else I would have a large pile of dust by now :D . You stop the rotting process at a point or the wood just decays to a soft pile of mush. After the process is stopped it can be stored.
