This was a block of wood was laying around forever just looking for a chance to show its beauty. Hope my fellow woodworkers agree with its new life.

Welcome to the site Dick. I’m new as well.. The wood is figured Maple but I use most hardwoods,Walnut,Cherry, Hickory. I’m a retired builder-carpenter and have saved lots of my supply from cutoffs (firewood for most non woodworkers) Good luck and nice wine holder.
