My neighbor had given me some scrap to practice my turning skills. Among the pile was a chunk of an old hand hewn beam that had at one time been part of the house he grew up in. I couldn’t think of a better way to thank him than to give a piece of it back that he could use forever.

That looks like walnut. Years ago wood was just wood, use whats available, Super valuable now. Great good quality was used in old barns, happy you were able to turn it into a keepsake.
