I picked up some sweet gum in a stack of pallet wood and used it to make a play table for my two year old daughter:

Wood Table Flooring Composite material Hardwood


The problem is, I've run out of sweet gum and I need to make two chairs to go with the table. Apparently it's not very easy to find sweet gum in Minnesota, so I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for a wood species/dye combination that might look kind of like the sweet gum grain. The finish on the table is just polyurethane. Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestions! I've been considering walnut; I actually do have some sweetgum left over, perhaps I'll use it for the chair seats and walnut for the rest.
