Topic tags/keywords: ash maple pallet

I had to go visit the plant today, so in the quest for building a Shipwright style bench I was asking about some 3/4” plywood to scrounge. I got a couple pieces but along the way seen a pallet in a stack that caught my eye. Actually 4 pallets but one in particular.
After about an hour of breaking it down here is what I got
Maple boards

with ash runners

Bonus 3 boards with some pretty curl

They do have a bit of wane in them but nothing to bad, may have to back for the other three

Those are not maple boards. They are ash.

I had the stringers pegged. The cell structure seems much more closed on the boards. But on looking at many images I appreciate the correction. Thanks
