Mucho Mas Maple

Today I drove down to Willamina and picked up about 250 bdft of local maple. At only $0.75 per bdft, how could I resist? Optimally it will make some nice furniture, but worst case scenario is that it will serve as drawer sides and bottoms, dust frames, etc. It's so much better to work with Oregon maple than, say, pine or plywood- less sap, not too soft, not too hard, easy to compost, recycle or burn the cutoffs & shavings - just a great all around wood.
Also some spalty stuff, which doesn't hurt either...
