Topic tags/keywords: wood cookie slab lumbar

I recently picked up a thick round of wood and have cut it into a couple different pieces to create a bench but I am unsure of what it is. I did some investigating and think it may be Sycamore due to the lacewood look of the end grain but thought I would start a post and see if anyone agrees or has other thoughts of what it is. I am located in Southern California.

You guys are totally wrong. That’s definitely sycamore. ;-)

JayT, wakeup! That is Sycamore. Sorry to correct you like that but it had to be done.
