The Maples…...Curly, Birdseye and Spalted.
These 3 are all the about the unique and interesting wood that is Maple. Functionally, these are not the greatest boxes, rather, rectangular bases to support cool wood… :) ..... and fun to build.
Pic 2 – Curly Hard Maple, Padauk sides, Purpleheart feet
Pic 3 – Birdseye Hard Maple, Rosewood sides, Wenge feet and Wenge bow-ties. Hey, the top is cracked…....
Pic 4 – Spalted Soft Maple, Ipe sides (I think), Jatoba feet
Finish is shellac, poly and wax.
Thanks for looking.
Update – By request – here are a couple more shots taken in the morning sun :)
