Eucalyptus is a very hard wood. Harder than the walnut you were talking about. It works great.

I would not use pine because the minute you use the coffee table to write down directions or a phone number on some paper it will be there for eternity. It’s too soft. Unless you want the farm look I suggest a hard wood.

Blue gum eucalyptus here.

These slabs were bandsaw milled and air dried for about 6 years. Just find something you like.
