Can someone tell me what kind of wood this is. It has some burl in it and favors a walnut, but not sure it is.

can you get a few more pictures? It looks like the interior is unfinished and that would be a bigger hint.

That dark streak(mineral stain) reminds me of poplar. It was used all the time because its fairly easy to get it to look like any other wood. Of course I am no expert and could be completely wrong.

Thanks for the advice on the kind of wood. I have another table that I know is walnut. This was just such a light walnut, that I wasn’t sure of what it was.

I did not make the table, just putting a finish on it and then it is going up for sale. The owner wanted me to finish it for them and put a top to it and the other table.

Thanks again for the help. God bless!

European walnut… i think it is too light for American black walnut

I’ll throw in my 2 cents on it being a species of walnut as well.
