Bygde Posted May 21, 2008 Report Share Posted May 21, 2008 Scored a log of FREE maple today! My neighbour used to have a tree in his yard, which was cut down (before I started building guitars ). Well today he cut down the rest of the log, and I went over and asked if I could take the biggest piece, and he said yes! He would've dumped it in the scrapyard anyways so. It's about 80cm long, and about 35cm in diameter. I don't know if this will be useable at all, but hey! It was free! Might as well give it a shot. My "father in law" (me and my girlfriend isn't married yet ) has a mill in the village they live in, so this friday I will take the log with me and get it cut. I really hope that I'll get some useable pieces out of it, since maple isn't exactly growing on trees were I live I've painted the freshly-cut end with an oilbased paint, since I don't know if I'll get it cut this weekend. Roger is one busy man I tell ye! Fingers crossed! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
