Brown Maple in the House!

This tree, what I’ve called a Soft Maple, was in the way of a driveway-to-be and had to go.

A few months later, after the trunk spent some time at Reform School, some slabbed lumber came to the shop!

About 80 board feet, all will finish roughly 10″ wide and over 8′ long. Rough cut to a full 4/4 thickness. Lumber in the shop, stickered and air drying, is always a good thing. Some splalting adds character as well. Wonder what these boards turn into a few years from now?

    Hey, I found this blog while trolling through my old bookmarks. Are you a woodworker? Are you going to make stuff out of that wood? I like that splattered stuff.

    🙂 Should make some fine furniture when dried. Glad you revived the blog.
