Default FS Feeler: Curly maple component stands

I just bought a 15 foot long section of nice curly maple, it has beautiful grain and is a solid 1.5" thick. I'll be making component isolation stands with the board, but there will be a lot left over.

I'm just wondering if anybody would be interested in a 18" x 16" x 1.5" finished slab of curly maple to use for a component stand. I could sell them for about $40 just sanded, about $60 with your choice of stain color, or about $80 stained and with a set of 4 brass cones mounted to the bottom. The exact same thing goes all the time for about 50% more than those prices on audiogon ... I'm sure I could sell them for that too, but would rather offer them here first.

Shipping would likely be about $8 - $10 per stand.

Reply if interested, I should have enough left over for about 4-5 stands. It'll be first come, first served. And once I get the first one made, I'll post pictures.

Will do, should be able to post pics by the end of this week. I got the wood and it's a really nice piece ... lots of grain and a solid 1.5"+ thick.

Sorry BF = board foot or 12" x 12" x 1" It is the common way to sell lumber. FAS means that the "bad" side needs to be at least 83 1/2 % clear. FAS = First And Select, it is pretty much the best grade you can get. That must be one really nice piece of wood. Good luck with your project. Post pics when you are done

Gotcha, and yea ... it is a really nice board. There are no knots, and it's mostly heartwood. I did pay quite a bit for it, but finding clean wood that's at least 16" wide and 1 1/2" or more thick is tough, and demands a premium. So if you want nice maple stands and don't want to look around for weeks trying to find the perfect board, that's why I'm offering here ... and to offset the cost to myself.

Pics coming soon.
