As a small business, we appreciate the support we get from the community, and those who visit our community. We are taking steps to keep heavily trafficked areas of the store, and the restrooms, wiped down multiple times a day, and we have Purell for staff and customer use at the counters.
We're in this together, and together, we can drastically affect the spread of this to keep the most amount of people as possible healthy.
If you are staying home, we are shipping as usual, and offering free shipping on orders of $100 or more.
Similar to our Ambrosia Maple Bowls and Ambrosia Maple Boards, and other forms of figured wood, Spalted Maple is technically not a specific species of Maple at all, but rather a general description of any type of Maple wood that has been allowed to begin initial stages of decay and then subsequently dried and sealed to prevent further decay. The partial decay, called spalting, is not a problem and actually gives the wood dark contrasting lines and streaks where the the original fungus had begun to attack the wood.1. Once dried and sealed though, the wood is now completely inert and food safe. The resulting product yields a striking bowl or server that is truly unique.
