Cool looking wood cross section

When trees are trimmed or cut down in my neighborhood I like to collect sections for future projects. The coloring on the cross section on this piece is really nifty looking, so I wanted to share


Wow that is gorgeous! Any idea what kind of wood that is? That will make for a really interesting project someday :awesome:

Unfortunately @valerie I have no idea what it is. I’m so curious to see how that outer orange color will look as it dries.

Really pretty! I want to say maybe it’s buckthorn? with some heavy spalting / rot?

Just learned about the Forest Products Laboratory, which will, up to three times a year per household, identify a wood sample for you for free: Forest Products Laboratory - USDA Forest Service
