    results of milling a spalted sugar maple

    I got the first of 8 maple logs that have been splating for a little over a year cut. Here's a few shots. I cut most of it 4/4 and 6/4. I cut a nice feather crotch out, so I have some short boards.

    Nice
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
