Finally finished this one up for a neighbor across the road from me.
It had some pretty deep cracking in spots, that I filled / inlaid Turquoise and Aluminum shavings into, using CA Glue.

It is sanded to 800 grit, has 2 coats of Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil, buffed with a green Scotchbrite pad, then two coats of Johnson's paste wax rubbed in and buffed.

Great job!!! Can you post a pic if the end grain? I might be able to i.d. it for you. I love a good natty.
Thanks brother.....this is from some of that wood with the striped bark that I posted a few weeks ago laying on the tailgate of my truck.

Very nice, Darrell ! Are you sure it not Magnolia? :naughty:
Tks Jake, yeah I'm sure cuz it doesn't stink like that Magnolia I sent you,

I cut about 13 more Magnolia forks a week ago, and cut the top of my head on the end of one of the branches when I raised back up....still didn't knock any sense INTO me though,

I'm with DSIL. But it could be Holly. Was it a smooth, greenish gray bark?

Def not Holly or magnolia. Its Ailanthus altissima. This is commonly called the tree of heaven. The bark is often described as resembling a cantaloupe rind. Did it smell like peanuts when you sanded it?
