This was for my oldest daughter. She collects anything/everything she can that has to do with tigers so the natural choice of wood to make her furniture with was Tiger Maple. (She also owns the pencil post bed w/canopy shown in my gallery)

I love this color stain on Tiger Maple. Usually darkens over time as well and looks even more beautiful.
Well done.
