Looks like English Brown Oak, caused by Beefsteak fungus growing on the tree.

The fungus/tannin reaction causes the brown stain.

Totally agree, it can give the most startling results if chosen carefully!

Regards Peter.

looks like the same stuff as this was made from. it was labelled 'tiger oak' but i havent got a scooby what that is or where its from :oops:
Brown oak, as already pointed out is the effect of infection affecting the tree, Tiger Oak is the result of the infection getting a grip on the tree but not infecting it as far as Brown oak. Or in other words on the way to becoming brown oak.

Thanks ...there is a tool mark going halfway around the rim but with the naked eye you can hardly see it

you can see it more in this photo thanks to the light being on that side

Thanks Dave

Looks like Elm to me, in the hand it might suggest brown Ash, but elm would be my first guess.

I'd say ash with a little spalting on the right and perhaps a little olive section at the top, more obvious on the rim
