Question about anular rings
« on: March 15, 2018, 05:31:56 PM »
Can anyone offer any insight into why the growth rings on the middle piece appear to be "wavy"? One side of the board shows the pattern more the opposite. It almost resembles "fleck" on QSWO. It seems that they could be related to the tree's location rather than a particular event. As far as I know, it's Douglas Fir.

The cambium, for some reason, got crazy.  It got all confused and out of sorts.  Could be from injury or stress. Just like in people, and I know one goat that is kinda crazy and wavy, too.

That would be really cool to cut into end grain checkerboard for a chess/checker set with a contrasting wood (walnut).

A few years back I built all kinds of house components from some reclaimed O.G. doug fir and noticed 

this fairly often. I sure can't tell you what causes it.
