Spalted Maple and African Ebony

Click image for larger view

The first in a series of Spalted Maple flutes I will be making. I came across some maple boards with some amazing spalting in them, enough for about 50 flutes.

Combining African black Ebony with the black spalt lines in the maple, ties it together. Finished with 3 coats of pure non-toxic tung oil and a final coat of natural beeswax. For the Totem I came up with this abstract design that represents water in the form of a wave.
