This is a first for us, a classic camel leg table. I am building these to sell and to get away from the normal stuff we build. This is all figured maple and the last pics are with a coat of classic maple by minwax. Comments are always welcome and if someone could tell the correct type of maple this is would be great.

Looks good.
It is called ambrosia maple.
Could be from a sliver maple or sugar maple.

Looks great, I can’t sell any of my furniture anymore I get to attached,I mostly part with it by giving it away to friends and family, that way I get to see it every so often.

Its a big hit with me too, seeing i get it 5 bucks for a 1×12x8, and retail is 6.25 per board ft.

local sawmill where i get cedar, cherry and walnut. Honestly didnt know what i had till i looked it up and SASmith commented, so now tomorrow I’m goin to go buy the rest of it
As I said its 1×12 8’ft long, bad thing its a lil hard on the planner blades.
