Got a chance to get some maple from a tree that blew down at a buddys house. Question is what part of the tree does the best grain patternes come from?
I have limited space as I already have some walnut air drying and straight grain maple is cheap enough I probably won’t spend a lot of time and space on it.
The small stuff is gone. there is about 12’ of the trunk from the roots up left and a 10’ piece that had several big branchs from it. Trunk is probably 3’ across and other piece is about 2’ across.
Anybody milled one befor? Need to get after it befor somebody cuts it up as firewood.
