Natural Edge, Live Edge Ambrosia Maple End Table
This Ambrosia Maple end table measures approximately 18 by 23 inches and is 24 inches high. Table top thickness is 1 1/2 inches. Ambrosia Maple is a soft maple which exhibits a variety of greyish-blue to brown streaks that are caused by an infestation of the ambrosia beetle. The beetle burrows into the tree and leaves a fungus in its path, which is what causes the discoloration in the wood and creates a very unique pattern in each board. The small black holes are where the beetle has entered and bored through the wood. Large natural cracks & voids have been filled with black epoxy. Small checks and cracks and other natural imperfections remain as is and are typical of natural edge tables. The finishing process begins by sanding through various grits up to 800 grit. Next two coats of oil based finish are applied to bring out the depth and figure of the wood. This is followed by at least 4 coats of varnish to provide a durable top coat. The shipping cost you select here is based on shipping via USPS. FedEx Ground is usually substantially cheaper. If you like, I can give you a shipping cost for FedEx for your location. Just drop me a note. The table will be shipped disassembled, but all hardware is included. Only a screwdriver is needed to attach the legs.
