Spalted Hackberrry Dining Table

Spalted hackberry is such a unique wood, and we were excited to work with this customer on a custom dining table using this wood type!

Spalted hackberry is a rare wood type found here Iowa and other parts of North America. The heartwood has a light brown appearance, and the sapwood has a light yellow undertone. The "spalting", or dark grey lines, are caused by a fungus that naturally occurs in the hackberry tree.

In this particular project, the customer was looking for a unique, farmhouse style table using this beautiful wood type. We used spalted hackberry to construct the top of the table, and we used our unique distressing process to create a rustic look on the custom turned legs of this table.

**Please note that this particular wood type is extremely difficult to locate. A close alternative to this wood type that is more readily accessible is called spalted maple.
