This isn’t really a creation yet, but will be.
I picked this pallet wood up. About a month ago, and am posting it for another members possible identification on some
Wood he picked up. I had to go to the
Wood Data base to figure out what it was.
Apparently it is a wood that’s fairly common in eastern Europe, and is used a lot for pallets! The slat boards of this pallet, are actually an orange in color and very figurative .

Never seen wood like that before, it is beautiful.

Wow that is really beautiful. You find some cool looking wood in pallets sometimes. Once I found a single board on a pallet that was multiple colors (red, brown and green) and had a shimmer in the cross grain the way maple does, but even more extreme. Some kind of tropical something I think. It was hard to photograph.

Your find is obviously easy to photograph. That is some beautiful looking stuff. That well make for a nice box. Good luck with it.

Thanks for the research Steve, that does look just like the pallet wood that I found. I have 5 planks 7 to 9" wide, 5’ long.
My shop is in an industrial zoned area, wholesale electrical, boiler works, etc.
The location where I found the pallet is only 2 blocks from my shop.
I’m for sure going back !!

If that is plane as in “plane trees”, I think it is what we call Linden.
Many streets and squares in Europe (France for sure) are lined with these beautiful trees and they provide lovely dappled shade to an otherwise harsh stone and concrete environment.
Nice looking wood.
