Dusty, before I found this old table made of swedish maple I had never heard of it myself, I can tell you that its the hardest wood that ive ever worked with.

That is a nice looking board. I really like the contrast between the maple and the walnut and your design and proportions looks good as well.

That looks great.
I half expected to read that now you have to build a kitchen table, to replace the one you cut up to get this wood. lol
