Oregon Big Leaf Maple is slightly coarser than European or Eastern Hard Rock Maple and as so is somewhat harder to work. Despite this, the beauty of the wood easily overcomes any difficulties in working. Maple is a wonderful wood for those who seek a creative flare in their projects.
Blanks are freshly cut and wax sealed. They will dry slowly through the wax. These are ideal for twice turning as they will produce long shavings and very little sawdust in the air. Blanks will dry easily once turned. We are happy to answer any questions you have about twice turning. This wood will have some bark incursions that are normal for the species and are represented in the pictures. There will be shrinkage where there are bark incursions when the bark dries. The bark may fall out and leave a live edge or there could be checks near the bark. Rough edges and saw marks that will easily turn away are present on only a few blanks. Since this is in the process of drying, the descriptions for each piece are at the state that they are currently in when described. Blanks will develop large checks and defects while they complete the drying process. If the defects will interfere with turning we will contact you. These blanks are not intended for resawing into thinner pieces. The piece are trying to spalt and areas of blanks may develop some spalting.
