Looks like elm pores to me, slippery elm?

Well, I made another reply, got a PM, and then lost it.  I'll make it again.  

If Nathan is saying what I think that he is saying, then he is correct.  ;)



Here is the bench, cookie backrests, and stretcher, all sanded but untrimmed.

I will have to get some serious advice about staining the cookies to prevent them from absorbing too much of the stain, but I will ask that question in the Woodworking board after this is correctly identified.  ;D

Interesting about the confederate pin.  Learn something new every day.  I like this thread.  Using a thorn to pin your uniform together.

Yes Honey Locust and here is where I sawed it:  Whatcha Sawin' ??? in Sawmills and Milling  It's been air drying since August 31th and "She who must be obeyed" declared that it was dry enough to make her bench.

I have never heard the term "confederate pin" before but it did sorta make enough sense to know what it was.  smiley_headscratch

@Don P , I was also surprised to see the wavy pores which is why I decided to put a "what is it" here on this board.   I was hoping that @WDH would fall for it but the only thing that you can catch him on is sap wood ERC and sap wood Walnut.  ;D

I like the clues and alternate names being thrown into the tree of the day thread, and thought a similar hint might work well here. 

I found the Confederate Pin name for the honey locust in some book years ago with a brief explanation. 
The thorns were used by confederate soldiers for their uniforms. 

I imagine those uniforms became quite tattered, missing buttons, etc by the end of the war, and for many veterans, that might have been their only shirt.  I recall the shirt had lots of those big buttons down the front.  A honeylocust thorn could thread through several holes from the top down, and a smaller branching thorn could would stop at the top hole holding it in place. 

Maybe true, or maybe a derogatory claim from the northerners about the poor shape of the confederate army?
Seems like a practical solution to me. 

those benches look good 
Have you ever put a UV black light to honey locust, or black locust. 
You will see yellow heartwood, and blue sapwood.
