i’m pretty sure it’s mineral staining. i recently completed a set of 2 end tables that had something similar, it’s on this site if you want to compare it. i sold them at an arts and crafts fair this past week. while they were on display, a fellow from the forestry service came through shopping with his wife. i had him look it over. he agreed that it’s mineral staining, but he’d never seen it before in maple and had 30 years in the forestry service. i’ve worked a fair amount of maple and only came across it once. it must be pretty rare, yours is the only other piece i’ve seen like it.
