Not only would this very hard piece of Apple wood slice be a warm and charming addition to your collection, but if you look closely at the wood grain surface you will see some difficult to find Spalting. It is a rare find this kind of Spalting in a piece of apple wood. In fact, I found this piece in an apple tree that I was trimming on our property. The Apple Trivet has been beautifully sanded to an almost polished surface. It would make a charming addition to your kitchen as a Trivet or even as a centerpiece.
