There are no worms in this wormy maple wine rack, but there were. Beetle larva invade sugar maples and cause dark scarring. They move on but leave the tree weakened and that is how I came to have this lumber. The tree was taken down and milled by a friend in the Berkshires. I used it to make this wine rack. The shark is carved from blue pine and aspen, the rack holds 2 wine bottles. Finished with varnish oil, walnut oil and beeswax. All proceeds to Atlantic White Shark Conservancy.
