the boards are about 2” wide (2 1/4”, but I believe that includes the T&G), 4/4 thick and varied lengths.
That room is 20’ x 40’—only about 5’ of it doesn’t have any planks. The pile is roughly 5-6’ tall.
With various amounts of help, I pulled these up from the floor and then moved them into this room. They will then get processed and sold. If you need some maple, LET ME KNOW!
All of is MFMA 2 or better. Most of it is labelled MFMA-1. It’s from 1974. It’s in beautiful condition. About a quarter of it is either: highly figured, very curly, birdseye, ambrosia, or really ribbon-y. Maybe more than that.
We’re going to be selling the wood to help pay for the woodshop and the building it sits in, so this is a massively awesome fund-raising effort.
And of course I’m going to knock myself out with as many projects involving maple strips as I can possibly think of!
To see some of the rest of what we do, please check out the main Geek Group website. I have a feeling many LJ’ers would be interested! :)
And if you live in the Grand Rapids area and want to help make things that we can sell… let me know that, too!!
