A former co-worker who now works at a sawmill called that he had some wood that I might want. He put back some sassafras and some maple with streaks. It was ambrosia maple, I was anxious to see what it would look after finishing having never work with it before. I chosed clear shellac and read and watch YouTube on techniques.

I used this opportunity to make a cloud lift pattern and an indent jig for future projects.

The board had some streaks and some burl patterns and after finishing it looked pretty good. I completed the end table using poplar, cherry, and pine scraps. I was happy with the results.

Pretty. Nicely done. And the view in that yard is beautiful as well!

He is and he lays back wood for me. The day I picked up the wood up, there was a tractor trailer loaded with 6×6 that had the ambrosia maple mixed in I doubt it will be used for furniture. I believe I am going to give the end table to the owner to keep in good standing.

That is a sweet-looking table top!
