My ignorance in these descriptive matters reminds me why I have been sticking with Goldtops lately ;-)
interesting read. Some coherences do not disclose at once, at least not for me, but after reading some sentences twice, it pretty well clears up.Here is an interesting read, I thought I would post this and there is a TON of info on this page I'll post the link, It a Wood working Glossary so one needs to sift through it, I was going to break it all down for us but holy crap.
Anyway great resource, and it book marked for me;
curly figure --- Contortions in grain direction sometimes (interlocked grain) reflect light differently as one moves down the grain and this creates an appearance of undulating waves known as curly figure. It is frequently described as looking like a wheat field in a mild wind, or the rippled surface of sand just under the surf at the beach, and can be so strong an effect that your eyes will swear that a flat piece of wood has a wavy surface. Many species develop this figure, maple being a very common example. Stump sections of trees often produce a diagonal, staircase-like curl referred to as "angel step" figure, and a rolling curl figure that is sometimes called "cross-fire". An extreme form of curly figure is called "fiddleback". The amount of curl in a wood sold as "curly" can range from almost none to truly spectacular, so this is not a term to be trusted via mail order purchasing. Below is a composite pic with numerous species with curly figure. To see more pics of wood with curly figure, click here: curly wood pics.
