Actually I'm sort of afraid to ask, but ask I will.
I got this nice stack of Hard Maple.........
Most of it is about 6.6 cm thick (2.6") it was as thick as they had. The two long pieces are 2.7 meters long (106").
What did I pay......??
About $9.35 US per board foot....... not cheap eh?
That stack there on the table is worth about $370 US
Oh yeah, the Hard Maple all comes from Canada too!
Remember, the walnut was really expensive, I paid $15.70 US a board foot for that stuff.
They did toss in a couple of nice 8cm square piece of beech and I got this NICE big chuck of Tamo (Japanese Ash) for about $15.........
I've already cut up the two off cuts of Maple and turned a little snowman...........
....... boy does this Maple turn smooth, I'm going to like this stuff for sure!
