    Wood ID

    I saw a couple of guys cutting down a tree. I had to stop and ask if they were looking to get rid of some of it. They said somebody already claimed it and it wouldn't be good firewood. I told them I was a woodturner and tried to get a couple of pieces when I see people cutting down a tree. They gave me a couple. They said it was cottonwood. Looked like spalted maple to me. It is spalted. What do you all think.
  2. Got this plank from a turners estate today and trying identify. I think it may be leopard wood. What is the consensus of opinion?

    New wood

    I saw where somebody had a tree cut down in their front yard while driving around. I stopped to ask about it and was told to help myself. I grabbed three logs for now but will probably go back for more. The guy told me he thought it was maple. What does it look like to you all. Also I have a picture of a bowl I started to turn from it. I discovered I need a large bowl gouge and roughing gouge very bad for these larger bowls.
  4. Hey @John Morris - some time back you said that you might be able to id the style of rocker this is. This was my grandmother's rocker. I have no idea where or how long ago she would have got it, likely in the 1930's or 40's maybe. Don't know if it was new when she got it. I do know for certain that it has rocked many babies asleep over the last 70 years! It is a pretty heavy duty solid piece of furniture. It has been painted a few times and the seat recovered several times over the last 50 years that I am aware of. What would this style of rocker be? I would like to see more items like this and really don't know where to start.

  6. Does anybody have any idea what type of wood this is? It is a stump I took out in the front yard. Don't know how long ago the tree was cut down but it wasn't there when we moved in two years ago. Looks like it has some beautiful grain. I am going to make a couple of bowls when I get a bigger lathe.
  7. This may be posted somewhere on our site, but I didn't see it. http://www.wood-database.com/ Thanks to a member of the Mason-Dixon Woodworkers Club for the link.
  8. Picked this up from another site. It may help someone identify a wood species. https://www.canadianwoodworking.com/woods-know#
