I have made a number of pieces using curly maple (Acer spp.) and have always liked how the grain pattern, especially when finished with oil/varish, can create a 3D wave like effect. Previously all my work with curly maple has been on flat boards. To exaggerate the curly wave pattern all of the legs on this table are curved by steam bending. To emphasis the curves of the legs I sandwiched the curly maple around sapele mahogany (Entandrophragma cylindricum).
