One of the most common questions I get asked is ‘what does spalting look like on XX wood?’ Below I’m compiling a photographic list of different wood species and what each type of spalting looks like per wood species.
If there is a wood species you would like to see on here that is not listed, please e-mail me and I’ll see if I have an archival photo somewhere. If you have an IDed piece of wood with spalting that you would like to add to the photo data base, please e-mail it me and I will add it below.
There are a lot of images on this page. Depending on your internet speed, it may take a while to load them all.
