I do like apple wood.  Most of it combines the dark core wood with the light sap wood.  It is reasonably close to a black wallnut - but the sap wood is usually quite thick and sometimes the core wood is much lighter than the one used on this table.  

It is definitely not a very common type of wood for a bonsai stand...   

Anyway, here it is.

Dimensions:   21  x  17  x  5,4 cm    /   8,3 x 6,7 x  2,1''

Straithforward  design.  The colour of the wood is the key.  For a comparison - the table below is from a black wallnut.  No stains just a tung oil  with some resin on both of them.   Mitered joints - spent some time to figure it out  Cool.

Very nice stands. I like the contrast of the sap and heart wood. However, it will take a fairly powerful tree to stand out visually from the stand.
