Another great piece. Any more? Keep 'em coming please.

G'day Mapleman, You guys obviously keep the good maple for yourselves, I had two blanks sent to me by a dealer in Qld and was nothing like what you are showing. Have you a special finish to bring them up like that. Very nice carving.

Hi Bob,the finish was done in 'Mirotone"(semi-gloss).All the trees that i harvest are "Salvaged"from farm paddocks,most are big narly specimens that are either dead or dying.They display much more colour and grain than their forest counterparts!! Here are a few images to enjoy.Regards Mapleman

G'day MM, Thanks for the info and the pictures. You said to enjoy, hell I'm drooling,is that the natural colour? Do you sell the wood you salvage? I looked at your other pics, some big trees there and I suppose they would have been burnt if you didn't gather them. Thanks for the pics. Bob.
