Hi Folks



Anyone have any idea what wood/woods this/these might be.
Both parts are from the same chair though they look totally different.

I thought the top one might be Chestnut.

Thanks
Glynn.

I would sugest with the contrast of colour in the shorter leg that it's Yew wood.

They are both yew. The darker one has a little sap in it, these are the lighter patches which would have originally been a cream colour. You just happen to have two very different types of yew, they are almost certainly from different trees, which is not unusual in what looks like components from a mid to late victorian English country chair.
