The photo above shows the use of the book Winter Twigs of Arkansas by G. Thomas Clark. While the book is out of print, it can be a valuable resource for rustic furniture makers in the Eastern or Central US hoping to use their work to connect more deeply with the natural world. As you can probably guess, the twig shown is black cherry. You can also find a hardwood winter twig key online from Michigan State University, or from Virginal Tech.
