Hey all, here’s my first serious project. The top is black walnut and the base is salvaged wood from a small tabletop that was falling apart. I think it’s cherry, but any help IDing it would be much appreciated! I ended up using a pine 2×3 for the top brace because I had nothing else to work with. The base was connected with red oak dowels, and the top was screwed to it so I can one day attach it to another (better) base. So far it has 2 coats of danish oil.

Base reminds me of maple because of the edge grain, but I’m still pretty new to identifying different species. The face grain isn’t real pronounced, so hard to say. Although on the inside of the left leg near the top in the first pic it looks like a face is trying to come out of the wood, that’s pretty cool. Sorry, ADHD strikes again. Anyways, beautiful piece and great craftsmanship, whatever the species. Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!

Beautiful slab and the base looks nice enough for a keeper to me. Is that bug damage on the live edge you can see in the first pict? Looks cool what ever it is.
