Spalted Tamarind is a beautiful wood from Southeast Asia. Much of this wood comes from logs that were either found on the forest floor or were cut and then allowed to spalt in the very damp warm conditions of the jungle. The colors and various line patterns are tuly unique from one piece to another. The patterns are created as a result of insects, so expect insect holes in all spalted woods. Use a good dust mask with any type of spalted wood when you work on it. Some educated experts are now saying there is no danger, but we would rather you stay on the safe side, wear a dust mask anyway.
