Some wood from a local (CT) place that sells reclaimed lumber… they have a barrel of small scraps outside, $10 per wheelbarrow load, proceeds to the local soup kitchen. It’s intended for firewood, but they’re good sizes for my kinds of projects. Anyway, I’m working on a small table. The first piece I think is hickory from old floorboards; it’s certainly hard enough:
I filled the large knot and gouges with clear casting resin, but I’m leaving all the wormholes alone.
The second piece I have no idea:
It’s also quite hard, too close grained, I think, to be oak.
The twisty curved piece, of course, is my favorite mountain laurel.
Tomorrow I’ll finish sanding and start shellacking.
