Walnut, maybe Claro Walnut.
Everything is a prototype so its a one of a kind.

I am the fourth owner, or so the lady I bought it from said. The story is the man she bought
it from, had in turn bought it from the grandson of the man who built it. He recalled playing
underneath it as a small boy.

I think it  is at least a hundred year old. Maybe more. The top is needing a new leather insert.

My question is, what is this wood?  Seller had no idea.  I don't have a guess at this point.


Pics for the brain trust:

Bottom photo looks like it could be Turkish Walnut..

My guess would be Claro Walnut(Juglans hindsi). Check out the photos at "Cooks Wood"

That's my other thought as well...especially if it was made in California... Winkgrin
