A Maple for all Seasons

November 15, 2013

Maple cake in autumn, maple syrup on steaming oatmeal in winter, maple dijon dressing on spring greens, or maple syrup on pancakes with summer fruit – oh yes, maple is a favorite for all seasons.

Oh my, we have some wormy maple at the barn.    (Actually, wormy maple is often called ambrosia maple because it is an ambrosia beetle that gives this wood interest and character)  Anyhoo, we’re rather smitten.  And yesterday, we attached three hefty slabs on these contemporary metal legs for a dining table.  We heaved heavy boards and sanded and then I had to leave.  A half hour later, I received these photos on my phone from Frankie.  This is how it looks with one coat of natural stain.

A table for all seasons, eh?
