This a table I made out of some wood from an old pallet that a friend gave me. I have no ideal what kind of wood this is, all I do know is there was some writing on the pallet that I think was from India or somewhere in that area of the world.

most likely brazialin cherry, It’s like Brazil’s pine tree. I have seen pallets made from this type of wood not sure if what you have is BC.

My first guess was a curly maple type grain pattern. Whatever kind of wood, was a treasure find. Nice results!

Beautiful wood. A great recycle.

Wow, nice pallet wood. It’s amazing what some people use to make pallets.

Beautiful Grain. It looks like Ribbon stripped Mahogany or Figured Mahogany? Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Is the material for the base from the pallet too? That looks like Cherry. If you can get a closeup shot that would help. For now I will say figured cherry. Very nice project

The base is made of cherry, I only had enough to do the top. You are very limited to usable wood you can get out of a pallet. There are a lot of nail holes.
