While driving around Binghamton, I spotted a large utility trailer full of maple... I asked the guys who had obviously just taken down a tree (trunk?) if I could take one piece, they weren't the 'boss' so they said no. I waited til the boss showed up, politely asked if I could take a piece and he said sure... with this look on his face like he didn't believe I was asking him. SO one large hunk o maple is in my work van for the moment.

Nice score.

Get that chunk mounted and turned before it starts to split.

Or you can buy some time if you get a coat of Anchorseal (or similar) coating the endgrain.

Enjoy the shavings,

I'm going to put some oops paint on the end grain until I can get it on the lathe.
