Slabbing the Robbinsdale Maple

I picked up this silver maple log from a backyard in Robbinsdale, MN. This log has two crotches and from the outside looks to have a lot of figure within it. There is plenty of undulation visible on the outside and the large crotches looks to have produced a lot of compression figure. The log is 4’ wide at the butt and the crotch splays to 5’ wide. Overall length is just over 6’.
