This is a very “arty” piece, you’ve got some great little HF’s there, dont bother about What timber it is, Just get some more it looks great.
well done :))

Your project looks great. The wood looks like mesquite to me.

I would never have guessed the pieces so small…I like how you arranged & the “timber” shelf!

You call it family portrait, you have a very nice looking family. Looks like it could be in a art gallery!
