I cut maple like that quite often, you will definitely want to let the acclimate to your home for at least a couple of months as the wild grain will move with moisture change. The bark should all be picked out, or if you have a media blaster you can use ground corn husks or ground walnut shells to make it easier. Harbor freight has a decent one fairly reasonably priced. That wood will look absolutely gorgeous, take your time and you will be rewarded. Check out and study different fillers, they have differences and you may find just what you want with a little snooping around. Best of luck.
