You will receive the exact piece in the attached pictures. Price is for this one piece. Does not include the simple wood display stand. This is a fresh cut from a dying silver maple tree in april 2021.
The current moisture content after milling is about 24%. We are air drying it now indoors in a controlled humidity. We could place it in the kiln for a couple weeks to dry it quicker upon request. Quick drying seems to add more checks and cracks than a slower air dry.
This is mill cut so it should be close to flat and of equal thickness. The surface has a heavier saw blade texture. Notice the unique hollowed area, perfectly spalted design, along with the burled outgrowths along the edges. The bark is only partially intact with some of it missing. This is a premium, figured silver maple tree slice.It has an egg-shaped appearance at approx 16 x 23 inches across. It is approximately 2 3/4 inches thick. It was mill cut flat but may not be exactly perfect in thickness. This is a piece of highly desirable, very unique silver maple wood slice. The piece was left dry for some of the pictures. Some pictures show the pieces misted with water. A finish of epoxy, polyurethane or wood oils will really bring out the fantastic shades designs in this maple wood. It is likely to develop some checking/ half- cracks as it dries. The piece is almost completely flat but not perfectly. We may have more of this style if needed, message us. There is no extra sanding, planing or drying. We also have beautiful eastern red cedar, walnut and oak, mulberry and elm tabletop slices available. Since 2013, i always give multiple pictures and a detailed description, so you know exactly what your going to get. You can check us out on facebook. This item is made of burl and wood, maple.
