Mike, not sure , Dan didn't know and I don't either.  They were .035 and I sanded to .025 to clean up. That made em a lot lighter color, will be a little darker and browner than maple I think...
Stay sharp, Kenny.

I really like the wood Kenny, but not sure on your tool list, all I see is a chisel, screwdriver and a claw hammer... :dunno:
