Holy Maple ------

This week we have been sawing Hard Maple logs and this is a big one. It is truly amazing to see the size of the boards coming off. The largest hard maple log we currently have in inventory is 36” in diameter with 1024 board feet. That is a lot of log to handle and these guys know just how to get the job done.

                        Spots in photos are caused by sawdust particles. 
                                          Very large hard maple log.
                                          Typical size hard maple log.
