These are some stabilized Spalted Maple blocks (http://www.burlsource.us/servlet/the-STABILIZED-WOOD--dsh--Knife-Handle-Material-cln-Maple/Categories) I just added to the store.

Really Good flamed figure and Really Strange coloring. I like them, but I like the strange stuff.

This is some Oregon Maple that had very good figuring. The log laid out in an old rock quarry for years exposed to the elements. A fellow I know grabbed the log thinking it might be something I would like. When I cut it up I found that the spalting had created all kinds of unusual coloring and the wood was still really solid. So I cut it into blocks and had it stabilized by K&G.
This is how it turned out.
