Interesting info guys.

Scott – Regarding the “stains” they are not very degraded and soft as I have typically found in ambrosia maple but I assume it depends on how long the wood had been “infected” as to how soft the wood becomes.

Charles – The possibility that this is actually maple that has been labeled as cherry is interesting. It may be possible based on the figuring of the grain – however I doubt it would be hard maple because it seems to be about the same hardness as cherry and not harder than hammered hell the way maple typically is.
