This table is one of only five that came

from a tree trunk lying on the forest floor

in the Muskoka Region of Ontario.


Because it was found on the forest floor,

 the spalting process had already begun.


Spalting is the process of decomposition

 which begins in wood as soon

as the tree dies or falls to the ground.
