    Saved from the firewood pile.

    I got a call from a guy that processes firewood. He said he had a special Maple that shouldn't be cut into firewood and would I be interested. I stopped to see what he had and was so interested I brought home a truck load. I will be processing it this weekend and offering some for sale.

    I think that is what is called Blister Maple. It is the first time I have seen an example other than a sample chart.

    Boy is that something else!

    That is spectacular looking wood. It looks exactly like what Barbara said, "Blisters".

    Terry, you should be very careful about not catching whatever gave that wood those blisters. Send it to me as I have no wood allergies.....
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Beautiful and very nice of him to call you. I'm sure that would have burned just as well as plain wood.

    Seriously Impressive!

    I don't think I have ever seen anything like that! I have never even heard of this type of figuring. That's absolutely awesome, congratulations!

    There was no generocity at all. He had $$$ signs in front of his eyes. It certainly paid him more that a cord of firewood.
