Hey Thanks Randy! I picked this Soft Maple up just yesterday in Hutto, after driving thru Austin to get there. 8-)

I really do NOT understand the class warfare thing being waged against Soft vs Hard Maple other than to attribute it to one-up-manship. The guy I got this from was closing up a 22,000sqft shop after +27yr of building not much more than Soft Maple furniture/display products. Says he made a lot of $$$ doing just that but is now retiring at 59, just as I ramp up in retirement to WW’r status at 59… go figure…

All I know is $2/BF is a bargain that I can afford to make a few mistakes with. 8-)
