Topic tags/keywords: question wood species

Hello all, new to the site/ forum. Wondering if anyone has any idea what these are and what they’re used for? Guy that gave them to me said something about possibly being Asian species and maybe used for a table? Big and small one, solid wood and very heavy. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

My guess is a “kid with a new toy”.... someone got a new lathe and the only thing they had on hand to turn was some large stock….just a guess.

Quite possibly an architectural detail in a restaurant, club, etc. At this point, if it’s solid, then it’s scrap wood supply waiting to be turned into something pretty

Looks like Monkey pod.
I used to get wood from a guy that brought wood up from South America some right out of the Amazon jungle.
Some were a mystery to pronounce or spell.

My guess would be some type of wooden last.

Have your say...
