Needless to say, our Sourwood Gallery President didn’t want to left out of the “new” reception desk deal. So to keep her happy (and of course, I was seriously put upon to return to my shop and make more sawdust), I put together another using all ambrosia maple. I was pleasantly surprised that the 8/4 ambrosia maple top was a whole lot easier to work with than the 8/4 purpleheart top of the Red House desk.

Love the wood and the grain. Great desk, and all the raissed panels on the back are great…

Very nice looking desk. However my vote is still with the purple heart since it has so much contrast.

Where do you get ambrosia maple? I can see several projects in my future that include ambrosia maple and walnut.

It’s an eye catcher and very nicely done.
