This gorgeous piece of Ambrosia Maple was a delight to turn and as it goes with all wood you never know what kind of surprises you are going to find when you begin to cut into it; the curly figured grain gives this Amrbosia Maple a sincerely one-of-a-kind appearance. Perfect for fruit or potpourri this platter is sure to capture the attention of your guests and family. Its shallow, elegant curve coupled with the accented ebonized ring and the glass oil lamp leave nothing to be desired in this beautifully unique piece of wood art. A completely organic piece, I have left the tiny holes made by the Ambrosia beetle for which this wood gets its name. The tiny Ambrosia beetle will bore and tunnel throughout a Maple tree and as it does the mineral rich waters within the tree's flesh will flow and leave behind the characteristic grey streaks with thin ink black outlines.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and take a look at my handiwork, I look forward to hearing from you soon.
