Yep, that sure looks like previously owned Alder. Looks like someone used it for target practice.

Btw OP, I’m not sure if you’re aware of the(very stale)running Alder jokes on LJ’s. But Fridge and AG are just screwing with you.

It’s Cherry.

1st picture I thought I saw a tinge of Poplar, but,
2nd picture I saw the Cherry. but,
3rd picture I’m thinking maybe Hickory.

But in conclusion, we know it’s hard old growth Alder.

Looks like Sassafras or Cypress

- Fresch

You all do know that Alder is famous for being called “poor-mans cherry”.

The Places where it looks like it was used for target practice are from how the boards were pinned together with a smaller board running the opposite direction inside the boards. I guess that would be called a pinned floating tennon.

The white things in the boards are my attempt at a butterfly to help stabilize the splits in the boards. I put them on the underside of the table.

Thanks everyone for helping me.
