This is another version of one of my votive holders which is very much in demand around friends and family.
I used a different combination of woods for this one which are spruce and roasted maple with cherry for the legs.

Thanks KIEFER

That looks like it could make a pretty nice sushi platter.

I like it. Is roasted maple a type of maple or a technique you used on it?

Roasted or toasted maple is a product made by heating the raw maple for a given amount of time under controlled conditions.
You can read about this process by googling wood heat treatment which is a very interesting subject !
My main interest is the color which makes nice accents but structurally the wood strength is much reduced
and somewhat brittle and soft.
Thanks and I am glad you like the votive holder they are easy to build, just laminate whatever scraps you have
and cut some angles and drill for legs and you are done and have a nice gift for someone !

Kiefer, you executed a nice design on the centerpiece. With design, such as you have done, and wood changes the possibilities for these are nearly endless.

Kiefer, that looks so cool did you heat treat the wood yourself or did you purchase it?

A big thank you to all of you and I feel honoured by all the good comments like sharp, zen, cool, pretty and on and on.
The design just came about without much planning and the choice of wood just looked good.
The roasted maple is available in this area from Windsor Plywood but I will try to heat treat some different woods myself and see what I can produce .
Thank you all again and I will for you future designs on LJ’s
