IMO, it has too much visible grain and figuring to be cherry.
But, I have never seen or had any figured cherry.

Thanks to all for help. I have done some research and have found several wood types that resemble this wood. The type doesn’t matter a whole lot as I plan to use it in a project and give it to my Granddaughter. It was mainly for my information. I’ll post a finished pic when completed.

Kind of looks like a section of cherry that has some curly figure to it. I’ve worked with a lot of figured cherry and it sometimes has like a “fuzziness” to it that won’t go away. Almost like an optical illusion.

Have your say...
