This is a bookmatched coffee table in Ghost Maple and Walnut. (I know it’s called Ambrosia Maple, but Ghost Maple sounds much cooler.)

Pictured are a few stages of the breadboard end detail in action.

Beautiful wood and great craftsmanship.

I could swear I have seen these handles recently. Was it on the TV cabinet with burled walnut?

In the words of Axl Rose, “Yowza!” What a looker. The wedged breadboard pegs are just too cool.

Beautiful work! I’m going to start calling ambrosia maple “ghost maple”. Would love to see a close up of the top.
