Choosing Wood

Here is a maple slab I just pulled out of my pile.  I will live with this in my shop for awhile to acclimate and eventually I will see it’s unique qualities and potential.  I will then begin to cut it down and get it flat to a workable state.  My gut is telling me that this maple will become beautiful book-matched panels or doors for a cabinet and would compliment some Honduran mahogany I have.   IMG_6675
