Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.
Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

When a woodworker’s mind turns to maple, it revives images of golden autumn hues, sweet syrup, and honey-colored country furniture. And why not? Fall foliage of the sugar maple (Acer saccharum) draws millions of leaf “peepers” to New England and the Great Lakes’ states each year.

This item was banded with other maple boards and the strapping material was pulled tight enough to leave indentations in the wood making it less than 100% useable.
the 2 X 2 maple was great . The 3 X 3 piece was totally out of square. Bought it to make a Krenov style plane body; totally unusable for that.
