Thanks, I figured that someone at the store marked them;) There were some exotic ones and they are the ones I am best guessing at, I have dabbled with them for years. The one thing I never thought about was a wood from the sumac family. It was light colored with red graining.  I thought I had to have some. Then I saw the sign "SUMMAC family , caution" I didn't need to google for that one. I got as far away as I could.

Hey @Ron Altier, sorry I missed this somehow...I really like this and a yet again another awesome idea rolling out of your mind!

How cool taking your birthday gift of wood chunks from her and transforming it into a piece of art for her birthday! Don't supposed she planned it that way do ya'?

I'm sure you have already, but make sure you've signed it on the back...even better a little note attached about the journey of this wood!
