Hard Maple curly bedroom set. The drawer boxes are made with cherry and tiger maple to give contrast on the dovetail joints. The back is ship lap tiger maple. The handles are spalted maple. ( You have to be carefull when milling spalted maple since the mold in it can get in to your lugs and couse serious health problems). I used quilted maple for the panels on the head/footboard.
