    First maple natty. I'm pleasantly surprised with the durability of this wood. Pretty tough stuff. IMG_20200924_174301.jpg

      Thank you.

      So I just microwaved it in blo and then baked it to a nice golden brown to cure it and give it some character. Left rough finish but might sand it after a week or two. IMG_20200924_193354.jpg

      Excellent! I love that roasting technique, I need to experiment on that one. Looks sweet.

      That looks great Sam, nice shape to it and color.
      BTW....still haven’t finished up that first frame from the Mtn. Mahogany you traded me, but it’s close and will be a stunner when done...that is some gorgeous and HARD wood [emoji1690][emoji16]
