Be the change you wish to see in the world. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

I have been a member of SparkPeople for five years. I lost over 150 pounds at the beginning and then gained but for the first time I did not gain back more than I lost. I can't imagine where I would be if I had not stayed around, even when gaining. I am determined to drop this weight once and for all and to get healthier.

"If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading." ~ Lao Tzu

Maple is just about the hardest wood used for framing and cabinetry, which is one reason older cabinets of maple hold up so well over time. Fewer dings and stains and scratches. It is rather finicky about taking stain, because the pores are so fine. It doesn't sink in very evenly, so you'll often see blond maple as a result.

The "birdseye" is just an unusual growth pattern that leaves tiny round swirls in the grain, the size and pattern of bird's eyes. They're actually very tiny knots from where a very small branch started to grow and never fully developed.

Maple was always one of my favorite woods for picture framing - to look at, that is. Working with it is a drill bit-busting nightmare, lol! It's so hard that you will virtually never see it used for any carved or turned project. That's one of the many reasons it was so popular in the stream-lined 40's, 50's, and 60's era cabinet. Très moderne!
