I just scored a nice batch of fresh cut (today!) maple. The tree service left me 16 feet of the tree trunk. Diameter was 48” – 26”. Got it all cut up into pieces I could handle and coated the ends with anchorseal. Didn’t get an photos, but will get a blog going with the first piece I turn. If you are near Nashville, TN and want a piece send me a PM.

That’s great. Was it hard or soft, being near Nashville, I would suspect the latter. I like sugar maple but Red and silver maples can be really nice too. I picked up a couple of crotch pieces of some sort of birch today at our local landscape recycling center and am trying to spalt them in a garbage bag using a process/recipe I found via Google-we’ll see how it works out.
