Hello Everyone,

I need help Identifying wood again, if anyone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it as everyone that replied last time was so helpful. Both pieces look to be hand carved to me, but I could be wrong let me know what you all think. Thanks again for the help I greatly appreciate it.

The first one looks like walnut.

I’d say walnut on the first one, too. The second one is tough, looks like it was sandblasted and flamed, perhaps pine.

Given the prominent rays on the first piece, if it is a domestic wood, there are three possibilities. An oak, beech, or sycamore.

The grain is not ring porous enough like you would see in oak. Sycamore is diffuse porous, like beech, but the rays are not wide enough.

Beech. It could also be European beech. At lot of wooden objects from that part of the world are made of beech, especially from Germany. Our domestic beech and the European beech look just alike.

they’re called ash trays, so they must be made out of ash, right?

Have your say...
