Maple is hard but with really sharp tools it can also be quite enjoyable to work with (in my experience). The worst time I had with maple was re-sawing a strip…that was about a 30 minute endeavor in fatigue.
I had to rip my stock from from a rough sawn board 1 1/8″ wide. It was ok when I got going but I agree it is a bit of a workout.
I think I’ll just go the the maple draw-bore dowels and see what happens! Hopefully there is enough give in the wood to not split.
