Ever Seen This Done?

This is a maple log about 16" in diameter and 10' long. The ends have been painted to retard "checking".

I sawed this log into boards 5/4 and 8/4 thick, then put it together again.

The customer plans to build two beds from this lumber.

Have a good day!

This post has been corrected from the original where I reported it as cherry. I was mistaken, it's was maple.

Checks are cracks or splits at the end of the board. This is caused by rapid drying.
