    What do you reckon? It is very light weight.

    The yellow grain is much more prominent than shown in the photo. Almost looks fake like a cheap wood stain might.

    I'd like to see a better picture of the bark. I don't really have a guess.

    Hard to tell from that pic but the grain looks like pine or fir.

    Sumac is very light,less density than Basswood or Butternut even.Plus it glows under a blacklight,try it & see. I've seen some pretty cool smaller vases & other turned art objects made from it.If you're lucky to find 5" to 8" rounds,they dont show up too often.
