There are a ton of open grained wood which it could be, oak, ash, sassafras, Kentucky coffee tree, catalpa, and many others I'm sure, I will guess ash since it is so common, Nice pieces BTW!

Ash was my first impression, but I'm guessing that my guess is wrong. :wonky: Regardless, really like both pieces, amazing color change after oiling.

It’s black locust with a cover coat of black dye, sanded back to 800 then burnished with swatches of brown paper bag… simple process with a unique result.
