  1. Tiger Maple is a little "yellow" for me…but I can surely see the attraction for other folk…the grain itself is absolutely beautiful…and I can envisage colour schemes where it would fit in perfectly…

    I'm right-pond and have something of a liking for dark woods…the upside for me is that dark woods are somewhat out of fashion over here (unless of course the furniture is "out of this world" quality), and hence cheap…so some of the restorations you perform wouldn't be financially viable over here…the downside is that my missus has totally revised her views over the past thirty odd years and is now addicted to painting over dark wood…

    But the absolute upside is that, having personally, painstakingly and expensively restored all the, (stripped out by two idiotic former owners), skirting boards, architraves, (and in some cases doors and door frames), bath panels, fireplaces, frames and mantelpieces, wainscoting etc…and restored floorboards where in one case mdf had been partly substituted, (learning almost entirely on the job), I've succeeded in impressing on her seriously that if any of the aforementioned change colour without consultation, so will she…instantly…and that includes the window frames painstakingly (in the case of the sash windows dismantled/reassembled)/stripped/varnished in three rooms…

    That leaves her with almost all the furniture, and to be honest little of ours is worth the bother, so she get's first dibs at all of that…except the six foot six inch tall bureau hand-built by my father out of second-hand recycled, (probably bombsite), wood/glass just after WW2 – it isn't at all perfectly built by your standards, but having restored it, (from the woodwormed, warped and split state my late semi-senile mother left it in), after a very amateur fashion…(I've no training at all, minimal tools, and very little resources), I think it's beautiful…possibly nobody else will, but one of my grandaughters is thrilled I've willed it to her…

    I live in a modest three bedroom semi with (now) a cooker (kitchen), an AGA/Rayburn (kitchen) and a black lead range (dining room)…I'm about to retire, having never been in a particularly well paid job…I've blown so much on restoring the house (to what it should've been), over the past thirty odd years…it's even affected how much I could pay into my pension…and yet I don't regret a thing…
