Mjon,

Nice table. Love the figure in the cherry.

That is the bottom dimension of the table legs, getting near tapering legs for a table I started early February. Legs and apron are cherry, first time working with it and like it so far.

Can you speak to working with ambrosia? I want to build something out of ambrosia but I’m concerned about rotted punky areas tearing out.

ive used ambrosia quite a bit it’s not punky or rotten at all,those streaks are caused from the worms that bore into the wood.i love it.
