Figured Bowl with Turquoise Inlay #391

Piece #391 – Ambrosia Maple, Turquoise inlay – 11.5″ by 4″ – SOLD

 

Much like Spalted Maple and other forms of figured maple, Ambrosia Maple is technically not a specific species of Maple, but rather a general description of any type of Maple that has been infested by ambrosia beetles. The beetles bore into the tree, and with it bring fungus that discolors the wood. Ambrosia Maple is considered a decorative feature which gives the wood additional character, and is sometimes available for purchase.
