New top came in today. Anybody able to tell what wood?
Looks bit like poplar I saw in my father-in-law's workshop...
! Figured cherry
3. Figured Myrtle
^ My first guess also.
The pin knots .....
It's poplar. True poplar, not the gray/green stuff typically called poplar in the US. It's usually called aspen or cottonwood in the US.
If that's Poplar, was its daddy a Cherry tree?
It's flamed cedar.
Looks like it has a few birds eyes on the upper part of the board. Looks like a very pink wide grain Maple. The lighting could easily make maple look pink especially if it has some mineral spirits on it. I think the lighting is making this look a bit pink but my guess is that is has some green hues to it.......Mytle
