I had to purchase this beautiful hunk of fiddleback maple from Washington, just over the bridge. I don’t know why I left without it a few days earlier. I have enough wood, I told myself. Ha!(said no woodworker ever). This tree was salvaged from Skamania county and I already have dibs on another chunk. I milled this thin so it can hang on a wall and just be appreciated for the beauty it holds. Less than 4% of maple trees have this kind of figure in the grain, a result of the weight from the top crushing down.
