Beautiful Piece of Maple Burl
Review by  KRM from Santa Cruz, CA
Good News: It goes without saying that WS makes every effort to take good pictures of all the 'unique' pieces of hardwood displayed on their website, but sometimes the pictures don't always due justice to actually seeing the piece up close and personal. When the piece of maple burl slab arrived and I had a chance to see the slab of up close and in good light, I was absolutely taken a back by the beauty of this piece of wood. I knew right away that is was worth the price. I am so happy I bought it and look forward to cutting several pieces of veneer out of the slab. Bad News: Please heed my warning and avoid making the stupid mistake I have every made when it comes to handling pieces like this. After carefully unwrapping the slab of maple burl, I carefully (at least I thought) leaned the slab against my workbench for a moment, while I discarded all the packing material. Not sure what happened or what I did, but I seemed to have bumped my workbench and the maple burl slab tilted over and landed on the concrete floor of my garage. The subsequent impact of hitting the floor caused the maple burl slab to break in half. Well, needless to say, I stood there in amazement and shock at the two pieces of maple burl now lying on my floor. After that, there were a few swear words yelled out load. At least nobody was home at the time. This was followed up by me wanting to kick my own a** over my own stupidity. However, like any good woodworker, mistakes do happen and it is what you do after that makes all the difference. Given the location of the split, I made the decision (right or wrong) to glue the two slab pieces back together. The end result of the glue up didn't come out that bad and now the piece has a little more character. :) Remember, don't make the same mistake I made and make sure you lay any thick piece of maple burl slab flat on the ground.
