Thanks. I wondered what those funny ends were!

It's probably about sixty years old. Due to its finish, I thought it was mahogany but it doesn't look like any mahogany I have ever seen. It's not teak or cedar. Walnut is a possibility. I cut it with a CNC machine but from the sound the cutter made, it's more dense than I would have expected from mahogany.

Whatever it is, it's going to have a new life as 'The Steve Smith Triple Convertible Field Camera' !!
