I really like the look of some of the spalted frames I see but have little access to spalted material , especially in the desert. I have done some reading on the DIY process and I'm tempted to try it on some dead black cherry I have access to. It's not kiln dried , just Sun , and I'm curious if any of you have first hand experience and advice. Is it worth it? How long for good looking material and what size is best etc.? Any suggestions or "don't waste your time" are welcome!!
