My brother had a maple tree cut down and milled into boards. They have been stacked and stickered in a barn for about five years now. I’m not sure if the maple is hard or soft. I also don’t have a clear idea of how much he has. Once I determine board dimensions and board footage, does anyone have suggestions on what to do next? Should he contact local lumber yards? Put an ad on Craigslist? He will probably give a few boards to me, but there is far more than i could ever use. Any suggestions are appreciated. My brother lives in Lafeyette, Tennessee. Thanks.

A lot of people in my area sell via Craigslist , listed under “materials”.

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

Too bad he is so far North of me. I live in Tennessee down on the GA border. But there are huge amounts of woodworkers in Nashville, especially instrument makers who would use maple for a lot of things. CL in Nashville.
