  • Does anyone in Vancouver have small scrap piece of Maple? 4x4 inch

    Hello Everyone,

    New in this forum and new to Vancouver, Canada.
    Hope I'm posting my request in the right place.

    Question..
    I just finished making up-grain Black Walnut Cutting board for my wife.

    But feel, to make it perfect, I would like to carve Canada's Maple Leaf into the centre size 4 inch x 4 inch.
    The hope is to fill it with a piece of Maple Wood. Gives strong contrast and makes Canada's symbol stand out.

    Would anyone in the Vancouver area have small maple wood scrap pieces?
    I have Titebond 3, can glue the tiny pieces together.

    Just need really tiny amount, asked couple of wood shops today, they didn't have it.
    I feel it would be waste and little ridiculous to buy a full plank to only use 5% of it.

    I would happy to exchange it for money or equal amount of black walnut.

    Thank you for the attention.

      I'd like to see a picture of your carving when it's finished.
