wet spots and white streaks in claro walnut
« on: June 14, 2013, 12:49:11 PM »
We seem to get a lot of wet spots and white streaks in some of our walnut. I have been told that it may be a bacteria. The surrounding wood is dry to 8% and the white streaks read 25-30% on the meter. No matter how long the wood is in the kiln, the white streaks remain. I have noticed that if the boards are left out in the sun the streaks will darken up and even disappear. Does anyone know the cause of these streaks?
