How interesting! I had actually never heard of spalting until now. The wood does look beautiful, but it sure makes sense that it could affect your asthma and I'm glad that you now can be cautious! Thanks so much for sharing this information!
My daughter and I actually live very close to a lumbar yard and when we moved here, I wondered if we would be subjecting ourselves to any health risks. I actually researched and couldn't find much, but now we both have asthma. They water the logs outside less than a mile away and I'm sure that all sorts of fungus and other fun things grow in the area...View Thread
