Western big leaf maple. My hunting buddy and his neighbor had a few very large trees come down in one of our big wind storms. The biggest was around 160’ tall with a base 6’ in diameter. I got hundreds of pounds of burl, curl, quilt figure out of those trees and they had been down for a couple of years so they had lots of spalting as well.
Cellulose runs through my veins!

That is my favorite wood and I bought a quilted board of it that was 2" thick and 8" wide and 2' long and ended up giving it to a friend here to make and sell somthing with it.  He made a fantastic bowl from it.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

That's the whole idea of working in your own shop. Do what you want. Although plans are quite useful and time saving, especially if you don't have the experience in a certain project.
