wood id...from carved, stained, lacquered wooden bowl9/7/13
So, I saw it fit to enlist some other professionals in the field to perhaps answer the question as to what kind of wood is featured in the attached picture, center view. I want to say some kind of pine, but, I've seen some wood like Stagmore Sumac that looks like this. It is the stain that is throwing me off the most.
I'm sure it's probably pretty simple, but after my own research and no solid answer, I would appreciate it very much if I could get a more informed opinion, as I feel obligated to give the most correct information to the person that is inquiring about this.
Thank you in in advanced!
Never heard of stagmore sumac.
To identify the wood I would need a better picture. Some information on where the bowl is from and who made it might be helpful, too.
Since it is stained, I know I didn't make it.
That bowl would be pushing it to be 3" in diameter if it were made of sumac in my locality. Frankly, I don't think you'll get very far, if that picture is all you've got to go on.
Staghorn sumac is what you may be meaning, but no way to tell since the wood is colored and the photo is blurry.
Positive ID based on visual characteristics alone is a guessing game at best (especially for shaped and finished articles).
There are between 10 and 25 thousand different wood species in the world and articles like these can come from anywhere. I suggest you wait and hand it over to your brother for his evaluation.
If I were to guess, I would say it looks a lot like bubilla or tango-wango, which is as good an answer as you're probably going to get from an up-loaded photo.
Yes, I made that up.
We cannot guess the wood from this picture only because there are many woods that looks exactly same as this one. So I would need a clear picture from all angles to tell you the exact match...
