Every time I have bought wood in the past it was for a specific
project. But while at the Borg Sunday shuffling throught the rack of
Maple for an upcoming project, I came across a piece of spalted
Maple. Somehow this beautiful piece of wood missed the sorting
process and ended up at the Borg and was overlooked until I arrived.
I had no choice but to buy it.
After I got home and carefully stacked all the rest of the lumber I
had bought I looked at the spalted piece more carefully outside and
saw the board was also curly. What luck!, a 10' 1x6 curly, spalted
Maple board for less than $30!
So now what? Should I cut this board up and build a simple box out of
this gorgeous piece of wood? Use it sparingly for accent parts of
numerous projects? Wait and keep looking the board over until the
board reveals to me what it wants to be?
Methinks I need a bandsaw...
