This is some elm I slabbed out. I am still new to slabbing & making slab furniture. Threw in a couple pictures of an Ash one I just did also. I am picking up all the Elm wood I can get. I think it’s beautiful.

Another Elm fan! I love it! What kind of Elm is this? It has identical grain to the elm I am familiar with locally but a darker colored heartwood. Nice project!.

Breaking out the Elm! Wonderful looking tables. The beauty of Elm is well known. Thank you for sharing.

I love the rustic look, funny thing I live in Elmwood park, and none of my local sources carry Elm Wood, go figure

I believe it is a Chinese Elm. I helped my parents plant these in the late 1960s. There are 4 of them that need removed now. Main elms available locally are American Elm. Told the Tree Services I work with that I want all the elm they can get me.
