INCLUDES 1 WOOD BLANK (several blanks are shown to indicate the range of color/grain to expect). Oregon Big Leaf Maple is slightly coarser than European or Eastern Hard Rock Maple and 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. Occasional sander skip or 1" long minor end snipe at ends is possible. The wood is kiln dried, surface sanded to 100 grit and ready to use! Micro Lumber may have a slight twist/cup/bow that should lay flat with minimal pressure.
