Couple problems.

It looks like a burlap. Much harder to identify the type of wood from a burl.

We also would need much closer photos of the wood itself.

A burl. A lot.

That’s the only photo I have right now, I’m considering buying this, was looking for a ball park range of what it might be worth. I’m buying one already ( pic in this response ) for a gift and the pic above is also available

Both pieces are functional art coffee tables. So it simply would be what the market will bear. Range? Maybe $500-$1500 depends on the location.

That really looks like a very large maple burl in the first post. I wouldn’t waste that much burl on one item like that, I would cut it up and make lots of things.

I agree it looks like a maple burl. I don’t understands why a bunch of sticks piled up or a burl is so appealing. How in the world are you supposed to clean it once it gets covered with dust its going to look like crap.
