Secondary wood woes

It's so sad when you've started planing the soft maple that's supposed to be the inside web frame parts of a dresser, and you see this.....

I had the same thing happen; bought some Maple and specifically requested a wide board as one of the two I needed. Well, it was not only wide but Curly! So I ordered another board and set the Curly Maple aside for something more grand than the simple plaques I was making.

So what are you going to do? Beautiful board, btw!

That's two boards so far. I think the drawer stock is going to be the same, but at least that is seen sometimes!

I think I'll hold these two in reserve for something where they can be seen. What that will be, I don't know yet!😁

Maybe I'll just go to Menards and grab some of their S4S poplar to hide inside this dresser.
