Oh my goodness ... that wood is sooo beautiful! What does your dad do with the wood?

It reminds me of Tourist Tree (Bursera simaruba):

Lin, my Dad is a woodturner and primarily makes bowls, pepper mills, pens, lidded boxes, etc.

Melanie, I did see where you mentioned he was a wood turner earlier. Does he sell his creations? Maybe you could post some on the Classified Forum? Green Grin! : http://garden.org/forums/view/forsale/

Someone on Facebook said it's Bishopwood (Bischofia javanica). That's a Category I invasive in Florida so if that's what it was, I'm glad it was removed. Do any of you think that's it? I looked at some pictures, but I'm not very good at comparing by photos.

There are a couple Tree ID groups on Facecook. You might try there? Not sure why 2.
I agree it looks a lot like a Bursera and the leaf looks like Gumbo Limbo. Yes Mellie - I grow Bursera too :-)
I have a Fagaroides (bonsai) and Gumbo from seed - also for bonsai.

Melanie, It does also look like Bishopwood, I think even moreso than the Gumbo Limbo and those tiny little fruits/seeds on the ground certainly bear a good resemblance to the fruit of Bishwood: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=bischofia+javanica+fruit...

I missed the pic above of the seeds on the ground. Though I am not familiar with the Bishop wood tree, looking at that Bing pic far too many similarities. My gut says Lin is right.

Whatever it is, that wood is awesome!

Thanks guys, I'm sure Dad will get a chunk of it, but I haven't heard what he plans to make yet. In a lot of cases, they'll make something for the homeowner out of the tree, especially when the tree had to be taken down because of insurance, disease, lightning strikes, etc.
