I made this Queen Anne Tea Table for my grandma a while back. It is made from flamed maple.
The legs were shaped on a bandsaw, and then cleaned up with a spokeshave and sandpaper. For the aprons, I trimmed an angle on the tablesaw and then finished the curve with a spokeshave.
I french polished it for a finish. A stain or dye would have popped the figure a little more, but it also would have faded unpleasantly over time with UV exposure. The shellac pulled out enough flame to make it interesting.
