A lady I work with knows that I fool with wood. The other day she said that they had to cut down a sugar maple and asked me if I wanted any of the wood. I told her I'd come by after work and have a look. When I got there my jaw dropped. The stump was about 36" in diameter. Her husband said that they had been trying to give it away for about 2 months and nobody wanted it. He said the trunk was clear, solid and straight for about 10 feet. The only down side (if there is one) was that their neighbor had come over and blocked it up for them. This is what I got. I got two loads on my ford ranger. Most of it has some pretty good spalting and some has staining from ambrosia beetles. He said that if he knew I would have wanted the log he would have saved it for me. I cut up one "small" piece and got 4 10"x3" turning blanks. I think I'm going to cut most of it into blanks and anchorseal it.
