Has anyone decided to take part in the FWW furniture building contest?
If your not familiar the rules are pretty basic. Must be Maple. Should
be built from one 10in x 10ft x 8/4 piece or not more than 17bf of
separate boards. Can be curly, birdseye, hard or soft but only Maple.
It can be dyed and stained.
I wish it was a wood I had better luck with finishing. I just can't
feature that stark white clean lacquer on Maple thing. I make butcher
tops but very few whole Maple pieces ever. I guess it's time to start
doing some sketches and learning how to get some color and character
into that stuff if I want to win.
