I made this Table from a unique Species of wood local to my area. Tulsa, Ok. Any one care to venture a guess as to what wood this is made from??? I’ll let this ride for a while or until someone get’s it right. It’s stained with a walnut stain. No varnish as of yet.

Why would you stain a ”a unique Species of wood” to look like something else ?

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!

The answer to your question, Dusty56, will become evident when the wood species is identified. It is NOT a common wood and it’s Natural grain/color would NOT be desired for furniture.

Jerry, it is not mesquite.

Gee, this is hard to identify with these photos. Any hints? Natural color, hardness (Janka scale?), tree size . . . ?

It comes from a relatively Large tree. Wood is fairly Hard and the trees branches can sometimes be as large as the base of some normal trees. They also grow at some very awkward and severe angles causing them to “Come Down” frequently.

Not yet, but getting closer. Cottonwood IS a trash tree and In my opinion should be banished from the face of the earth. But I don’t think you could build anything from it.

I’m going to guess mulberry.

Edit: The table is very nice, whatever the wood. I like the tapered legs.
