You shouldn’t be paying anywhere near full price for offcuts or short boards like you describe.

As mentioned above, maple is incredibly common and costs about the same everywhere. Try looking on craigslist and see if there’s someone clearing some out for a bargain price.

I got the lumber for my bed project a few years ago off CL for a little more than $200. It would have easily run $400 or more at a hardwood dealer.
