This is a found piece of live-edge maple that has been stained with aniline dye to bring out the convoluted grain of the wood. The item include three inset hand-made 1 inch tiles of leaves.
The top of the piece includes the bark, while the bottom has a large inclusion.
It is finished with gloss tung oil and positively glows.
As with many wood pieces, the texture of the wood adds a whole new level of experience that you can only appreciate by handling the piece.
