Hi Jordan,

From a photo like that, the best your going to get is a "good guess" without seeing the wood in person.

I believe its an Oak (Quercus) of some species and its presenting with perhaps a "curly" effect in the grain...Beyond that is speculation at best without much more info...

Beautiful work by the way!!!!

Well...I'm dang near stumped on this one...I think?

That piece bark from the xylem side sure looks like Live Oak to me...but I'm the kind that really needs to hold, "sniff", taste and such things to get a read on such things...even then a microscope does the best job for "odd ball" wood species...

Its spaulted for sure, which could leave you with a false reading for not cutting like oak. Its rare, but I've seen spault in just about every wood out there exposed to the fungus that causes it...

I don't think its Sycamore because its so dark but that is a possibility with some of the patterning I am seeing?

I'm still leaning to some kind of Quercus...

Great and thanks! appreciate the help in figuring the tree out. I’ve had the wood since hurricane irma came through! Reckon I’ll classify it as oak-pecan/hickory mix for now.

Hello Jordan,

Steve has added two species I considered but rejected...however they are worthy of consideration perhaps?

I'm pretty certain its probably not a "Hickory" (Carya ssp) as it tends to be rather different in color the the OP's photo...?

Spalted Hickory


Now...Pecan...???...that is common in most of Florida and is relatively easy to find a piece of. Its spalting patterns however, again don't usually come out like the piece shared in the OP's photo?

Spalted Peacan





Below is an example of Spalted Live Oak




With spalting...it truly can be impossible to get a good read on the species without a microscope if not able to see the entire tree...

It looks just like the second Spalted Pecan picture.
