    Hi Folks

    We are going to build new galley cabinets for our trawler in
    our cabinet making shop.

    The game plan is to do the build with Bird's Eye Maple.

    We have acquired approx. 500 board feet of this beautiful material
    and are wondering if there might be any drawbacks to using maple
    for this project.

    I read somewhere many years ago that salt air has some affect on maple.

    Can our members please chime in on this idea...
