      Let me be the first to say job well done!!! Not only did you do a good job with the pictures but the mirror came out great. All that hard work payed off. The cuts are nice and crisp and the finish on it brings it out the color in the wood. Is it stained?? what did you use for woods and the finish?? I see Neil types faster than me. So I am the second.

                    Well done, Evie! It's gorgeous. I wouldn't have the patience to cut something like that.

                      Nice work, Evie!

                      It looks like a burl or some kind of stressed wood. The color is basically right for Black Acacia, which is indeed common in California, but the figure is much wilder than you would probably find in a regular board. The pics are rather too small to really say. Is it possible to take another, quite close up, of the flat surface of the shelf -- where thecamera is close enough that the board fills the frame?

                      Here's an image of black acacia in one of my favorite settings (I didn't make this):

                              I will try to take another pictuer of the wood. for we have lots of it. my hubby is making a chair out of it. so if it is allowed here, I will try to post it ok. the tree was dead when my son cut it down. and we have had the 2foot wide,stump for 2 years. so its pretty dry. this was the first time i ever wore a mask, working with it made my eyes water, and my sinouses went crazy. in the dry form. it looks alot like ceder. but the grain is swerly. lots of colors. really pretty stuff. but hard to work with. thank you for your kind words.your friend Evie ps that guitar is beautiful. and it does look alot like the wood.
