Red Gum is very very pretty wood….. More so than just gum trees which have that reddish tone to it, thus why on older mahogany furniture they did use Gum for some of the parts caused once stained it blended in very well….. My experience with just what I call regular Gum is some pieces have more grainey,black streaks in it. Maybe it was more sappy then heart? I only worked with it a couple of times and got the wood from a auction. Red Gum like I Grizz mentioned is some very pretty wood, I think a more forgotten wood. After you do some Red Gum I think you will wonder why you never used it before. Just my 2 cents…. free of charge of course….
