Buy or Build?


The way insurance works, to replace some of our old with new we need to save cost elsewhere. Fortunately, we like to make things.

I’ve saved these spalted maple rounds since the tree fell down next to the house 20 years ago.

It appears after all this time they want to be end tables.

  1. Doesn’t sound like a real question. I love spalted wood. I was introduced to it by hurricane Irma which put down a beach tree in my yard. I said wait a minute, this is hardwood. I think I will keep some of it. When I started to slice it up I discovered spalted wood. Now every time an oak goes down around here (North Florida) I go collecting.
