RE: [MedievalSawdust] Wood to use to be period???... What do you think
Thanks for the info on Maple. I didn’t know it grew in Europe …
On a different note, were Maple products (maple syrup, sugar, etc..) available? Or is that a New World thing?

I'm surprised to hear you say that Maple wasn't available- in my research, the Acer genus was pretty widespread across northern Europe . I do remember something about the European maples being generally smaller than New World maples, so larger pieces (like a chest) might not have been as common. I've also read that the exact species of maple can be quite difficult to determine from looking at a cut board- so you wouldn't really have people saying "oh, that's obviously a New World wood".
I contacted Gary, and he reloaded the site. All should be good now. In spite of it's being a bit dated, I still consider this to be one of the best sources on medieval woodworking and tools.
