Here is more than one piece of nice splits.

I have some beautiful ,Sugar Maple in my pile. Curly,fiddle back, tiger stripe, flame. I probably could have sold it for a high price if I was smart enough to cut it into guitar blanks( but Im not). When I find a really nice piece in my pile I set it aside and give to coworker whom likes to make jewelry boxes for his numerous daughters. I have plenty of wood to burn. No sense in burning up the figured fancy wood.
I keep a pile of the special pieces aside from the main pile... extra large oak knots, buck brush/manzanita stumps that I dragged home on my bike, odd/dense scar tissue, etc. This is the first year I've dipped into some California Live Oak that I scored a couple years ago. Burns super clean and hot. The only wood I burn that has no familiarity like this is the fruitwood I get from the local orchards.
