Spalted, wormy maple from a tree cut down in my front yard and walnut. Oil and wax finish.

Nice job, I like the twist you gave this from the woodsmith plans.

In retrospect I wish I’d filled the wormholes with something but they do add some character. It would make an interesting coffee table! When we cut the tree down I wasn’t thinking of saving the wood then one day I went to the wood pile and split open a piece and there it was… spalted and wormy. Unfortunately I only have a few small good pieces because the rest had gotten punky.
