A friend of mine was replacing all the windows in his house and removed all the maple jam extensions. He asked if I wanted the wood. I got it all home, surface planed it all to remove the stain and ended up with some nice stock about 3/4” thick by 1 1/2 wide. My wife wanted a smaller board for our kitchen so I added in some Walnut and made the first one for her. It measures about 10” x 11”. Then using just the maple I made one for my friend for giving me the wood. Its interesting how much variation in color there was in the maple. That measures about 12’ x 13”. A lot of time sanding and I finished with many coats of mineral oil and paraffin wax mix. I did take the time to build a crosscut sled for my table saw to cut the slices.
