Sorry about being sarcastic Glen. I lucked up and took my bride to the mill with me one day and seen a 6’ x 12” stick of gorgeously figure curly maple. She said snag it…. So I did….lol

I have used some in a couple projects so far (Cornerstone & J Box ) that I used some on.

I am getting this 4/4 from my mill at 8 to 9 bucks a board foot….. I get so tickled some times I tend to get carried away.

Man! It looks like someone dropped some silk on a table. That is amazing stuff!
