Spalted Maple is technically not a specific species of Maple, but rather
a general descriptionof any type of Maple that has been allowed to
begin initial stages of decay, and then subsequently dried (preventing
further decay). The partial decay, called spalting, gives the wood dark contrasting lines and streaks.

·8 drawers for general storage
4 drawers w/cedar backs, for fur, feathers & tools,
·1 neck drawer w/cedar back
