That is some pretty Curly Maple, that's not what he got from you this year is it? He was air drying that, right?

Bmac, you got all the 9/4 lumber from that log but two 9/4 piece’s and I have them. I kept all the 4/4 lumber from that log.

Well the Houston Boy talked me out of one 4/4 piece. :D

That is some real nice wood to work. Smooth as butter. I think I remember Dale said he didn't like that hard sugar maple, do I remember right?

Compared to walnut, which is much more open grain, or cherry, which should be more like the maple, this maple is fun. Completely different feeling. Only complaint is it does want to burn easily. Nevertheless, I'm saving every scrap!

  • True, but after I showed him a tiger hard maple log the ole boy had a change of mind. :D:lol:

To let you know how much Spanky thinks of this, he keeps it a spare bedroom!

Bmac, I have seen the really really good stuff. He has it at someone else's house .  I helped cut a lot of it and even have some of it...

Trenched the footings on October 3rd 2018, had a lite shower that night and the boys wanted to wait for a day to let things dry before setting forms...........then we had 8 inches the next day and night. Been fighting the weather since then but it is turning out really nice.
