Figured Soft Maple 508937
This set of figured soft maple has BIG figure, and some scattered character features. The figure in the outer cuts looks almost quilted in nature, and the straight grain cuts shows more of a fiddleback look. There is an interesting dark spot that travels up thru the log along one edge which will clean up to show as an area with a grey color. It's an interesting feature. There is a little bit of twist in the set, so flattening these flitches at full length will eat up some thickness - the set is more suited for a shorter project (overall length of the log is 11', the first half has been measured as 10'). The fiugre is strong and will draw lots of attention.
