    Milled up this ambrosia maple on Saturday. Came out awesome. I still have the logs in the pictures below to mill.

    Even the leaders are 24+ in diameter.

    Luckily I stumbled on his ad on Facebook before someone could get at them and turn them to firewood. I’ll post more pics as I get them!

    Very nice, super score. I like ambrosia maple a lot. I'm assuming that it was a Silver Maple you cut, correct?

    I got a hold of some curly ambrosia, matched up so nicely with black walnut in these pieces I just made;

    It was a pleasure to work with.

    Yes sir, silver maple. Going back this weekend to mill the other forked log. Depending on the rot in the long one it might get turned into firewood.
