In my earlier post I didn't have any pic's of the large Maple rounds that Mike Smith and I loaded up onto his trailer manually. Here are a few pictures of it on his trailer after he got it home. I didn't measure it but I would have to guess it is around 40" +. It had some nice spalting around the edge and should be very beautiful when cut into blanks. It would be a good time to give him a call if you need some silver maple. Mike sells wood blanks to turners. Here is his web site. http://www.easternncwoodworkers.com/ He is a great guy and located in Middle Sex N.C. so a lot of you could pick up your blanks from him and save on shipping.

I want be turning any of this log since I have 3 more out of the same yard this big or bigger left. I gave Mike this one to sell since it would have rotted before I had time to turn all of it even letting my students using it for their bowls. Here are a couple bowls I turned from another log from the same yard. Not sure the one Mike got will have this curl in it, but I hope it does.

And to think several years ago I had a Silver Maple cut up for firewood that was threatening my home. I'll not make that mistake again.:nah:

H'RAY for the boonies!
If you grew something like that in the city, you probably would have restrictions preventing you from cutting it.
