I’m very glad to be able to post projects here again it’s rewarding to read the comments from everyone.

Roasted Maple, it’s hard maple that has been baked in an industrial oven. Temp and time I don’t know. When it’s finished the maple turns dark brown and becomes very dry and extremely easy to cut.
