    Mmmm, maple. Yum! I love a clear lacquer finish on maple, like Rickenbacker's Mapleglo. Pardon me for jumping to the end of the book, but how are you planning on finishing this one?

    Mmm maplegasm. Maple is in my top 3 favorite woods, and this one is absolutely stunning. Really love the fact you combined spalted, birdseye and flamed together.
