How rare is flamed Alder? Where does it come from?
Flame figure comes from compressed grain during tree growth. It is a visual symptom of oscillating grain direction in the wood.
Flame figure is rare in most woods. I've never seen a piece of heavily-flamed alder before, so I am guessing it's fairly rare.
Why don't you send me a bunch of it and I will verify its rarity by using it.
