This slab of wood is larger than any others I have worked with. My first thought, when a friend of mine gave this to me, was “I’m making a table with this!”

That doesn’t look at all like mesquite to me.
I mill it here where I live in the desert.
Cool table regardless of the type of wood.

Hey Woody, I’m in AZ too…Gilbert to be exact. Can you tell what kind of wood it might be?

I’m not too knowledgeable on too many of the various species but it looks closest to a type of pine that we took down from my brother’s house but the bark looks a little different.
Btw, did you do put anything on it to help keep the bark on? Usually when my live edge slabs dry, the bark falls right off.
