I’d like to buy this table on craigslist but I want to verify the type of wood first. If its a nicer type like walnut or mahogany then the $50 is worth it. Im going to cut it up and make two cutting boards to give as house warming presents.

Hard to tell. Looks like it may a closed pore wood.
Most certainly stained. Not maple I think and probably
not walnut. Look underneath, it’s probably unfinished
on the bottom.

That’s a refectory table. It may have come out of
a church conference room or library.

Have your say...
