My niece wanted a quick gift for a girlfriend. Rockler has this ambrosia maple on sale so I picked up a board. She got this and a votive holder. Very simple project, but I really like the look of the maple. The finish is just boiled linseed oil. Top coat will be poly or shellac but she gets to put that on :-)

I went over to Rockler this morning to pick up some of the maple. Nothing they had at my store was anywhere near that nice looking of lumber. Definitely worth $4/bd ft if it looks like that though!

Here’s the “matching” votive holder with walnut legs.
