Every once in awhile, in the midst of the myriad scanning I do for the site, I stumble across an endgrain zoom of a wood sample that strikes me as being outstanding. Being that the standardized sizes of the zoomed scans on the site only show about an area 3/8″ x 3/8″ square, I can’t really show off the grain patterns that I see in processing the images for the site. So, here’s some sweet high-res pictures that I’ve found look nice, and would make for an interesting desktop background for your computer:
