    Found this in Florence Italy - What is it?

    I recently took a trip to Florence with LOML. She was very patient as I photographed every piece of wood carving that I saw. I really loved this door from the Palazzo Pitti and I'm thinking about reproducing a couple of these panels but I can't figure out what kind of wood it is. This is certainly not the walnut that I get around here. Any ideas on what this is?

    BTW, If anyone needs some carving inspiration I took about 75 pictures of different carvings in Florence.

    I hiked across Italy and loved Florence. The doors were a favorite of mine as well. I am going to say that looks like mahogany or cedar.

    Did you climb the Duomo? Do you just crave gelato every day now?
