Could you identify this wood?

Do you know what species of wood the table in the picture is? Is this considered burl wood or a regular slab?

Since no one else has responded to your question yet, I'll put in my 2 cents worth.

It's a slab, not burl wood. I am guessing maybe walnut, but could be something else if it was stained that color. Just my humble opinion.

I'd guess walnut over anything else I can think of but I wouldn't bet money on that unless I knew the original color. Yes, as juniper said, it's not a burl slab at all, just a slab.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

It looks like a slab of Pine that's been stained and top coated with a film finish.
