Hello Folks! How do? I am looking for some HIGHLY-FIGURED quilted maple that does not require me to take out a second mortgage. I have never bought any but would love to incorporate it into a project I am working on. If anyone knows of a source, please let me know. I am only looking for a small amount.

Gorby Walnut in Portland, Oregon sometimes has some. Good luck.

Hey Bud, I am picking it up for around 8 or 9 bucks a board ft at my getting place. I always have a need for curly maple (or birds eye which is a tad higher I think). Fill me in on in on what you are looking for and we can just go in on some. For that matter I have some out in the shop I can send to ya no problem….

Just let me know…..

I second Scott Porosky. He has highly figured maple at reasonable prices. You won’t find a better guy to deal with.

I suggest giving a call to Maple Leaf Hardwoods. Just google the name. I’ve worked with them in the past and they are very accommodating.

I’ve bought some really nice figured maple from this source. There are some good photos of the boards that are for sale.
