I just received my order of 30 board feet of curly maple. It is gorgeous. I ordered it over the internet from a company that I had never dealt with before, MapleLeaf Hardwoods in Hughesville, PA. They sent me a picture but you never really know what you are getting until you see it for real. I am so relieved. This wood is better than I ever imagined. All of the boards come from the same tree so the pattern is consistent in all of the boards.
I’m going to buy some cherry locally and start to work on the bed I have been thinking about for a long time. Here’s a picture. http://www.finewoodworking.com/Gallery/GalleryImage.aspx?id=27538
I should have enough curly maple to do a complete bedroom suite.
