I love ambrosia maple. I used to work at a trailer manufacturer, and a long pallet with a chassis on it came in one day. Well the long boards (3) were curly ambrosia maple. I made my mom a candy box out of it. Still have 2 8’ long pieces!!

I love any kind of maple. Nice shape to that box. Nice job of turning too.
