THE SILVER MAPLE PROJECT
Here lay the remnants of a beautiful Silver Maple Tree, cut down in this neigbourhood and originally destined for a landfill.
Follow along as we salvage this tree. Taking it from it’s current raw form and transforming it into beautiful one of a kind furniture and decor.
STAGE 1 - RAW FORM Logs
This is the form we received the tree in. It had been cut into a handful of logs, that once were the trunk and larger primary branches of the tree. In this form the logs will sit and begin the seasoning process (drying). Some logs are seasoned for months to years before they are every cut into lumber. This allows the log to stabilize at a lower moisture content and helps the tree relieve some of the internal stresses inside the lumber. In are case will allow the tree to site for a couple months or so until we begin the next stage.
