I’m hoping one of our many experts can confirm what kind of wood this is. Tops and rails are all 4/4, legs are 4”x4”. I’m thinking Brazilian Walnut, but it’s just a guess. It used to be a table and chairs, but they didn’t like it anymore and replaced it. They threw it in the trash, but were fine with me taking it, instead of the trash man. Not sure what I’ll build with it, but it sure is pretty. Thanks in advance…Bubbs

Looks like an Acacia of some sort.

Not a clue but it’s pretty wood. I like the dark and the light but not a big fan of the way it looks together. Would probably look great on something small like a box though

It could be black walnut, Trees grown in the open can have alot of sap wood. It looks like live slabs of a small tree that later may have been edged.

I don’t know what that wood is. I would call that very Calico
