My husband recently purchased 4’,5’,6’, 7’, and 8’ lengths of hard maple cores from a veneer factory (quite a lot of them) for a decent price. He is going to sell them for firewood, but I was wondering what other creative things they can be used for. Would a landscaping co. be able to use these? Where else might we be able to sell them? Are there specific wood projects that I could use these for?

What are the size of the cores. You write about lengths but what are the thichnesses and widths?

The cores will have the pith in them, so probably aren’t good for much other than burning (could be a lack of creativity on my part! – I also like burning wood!)...

Also, Maple won’t hold up well outdoors, so the landscaping option is probably out.
