Yeah, right between the eyes !
Any spalt is pure luck of the draw, no way that I know of to predict where the graining will land doing 3D.
This block was a lot more spalty at the surface but a lot of it milled away as I got deeper ,,, Which is fine, too much would be a distraction I think.
I have a love/hate relationship with this wood, love the look but too often blocks crack along the spalt lines, guess its just the nature of the game.
Made these grips from the same chunk of wood, turned out pretty nice.
