Tables Made From Maple Syrup Trees
“We make unique tabletops from maple trees where syrup taps were inserted to collect sap,” says James Goetsch, Merrill, Wis.
“We use trees that are storm damaged, cutting out 2 1/2 to 3-in. ‘slices’ out of the tap area. We dry them to remove moisture and then sand the pieces flat to get them ready for glue, which we use to fill cracks that develop due to drying. A stand is then made to support the tabletop and the table is given a natural finish.
“These tables are great conversation pieces because of how you can see the syrup taps.”
