      real hard to tell from the pic. Where did the wood come from (state)?

        Two things to help better identify it. As Scott said what state and part of the state. Also a sharper photo of the bark and the end grain.

        My Guess right now is it looks like oak to me.

          I know that black locust is very heavy and dense, but so is oak. Oak when cut has a sour smell to it. Don't know anything about gum wood.

            Looks like red oak to me... but that's my NE influence speaking. Good luck!

              Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

              OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
