After a similar situation as yours I did some google work and found some information on roasting: wood is brought to 4% water content then heat at 360F for 4 hours. So….I have an oven and thats an invitation to try this.


1. Material is 1-1/8 thick maple with great figure.
2. Heated oven , convection for the culinary folk here, to 360 F
3. Baked for 4 hours…definitely want the windows open and the fan on!
4. Final color is awesome!

At no time did I feel the wood was in danger of combusting, the smoke was minimal. It never set of the smoke alarm in my kitchen. Wife did want to know what I was cooking when she came home!

Leaves a great color throughout and better yet SMELLS really good!
