I probably can’t give you a useful answer Bob, but I will give you what I know.

I got some nice holly from my DIL’s mother a few years ago. I let it lay around in my shop for a while, not having a suitable project to use it on. It dryed up real quick and just cracked to the point of being useless. It was still a fairly young tree and not nearly the size of the pieces you have there. Sorry, that’s all I have.

Holly is very white with practically no visible grain. To my knowledge it is mainly used for stringing in projects for accents to contrast with darker woods. More experienced folks might have some better suggestions.
