It looks very similar to some red cedar burls I have and red cedar and redwood are cousins in the wood database.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Too small for an end table. But Cherryville Chuck you are correct. When I cut into the burl, it def smelled like Cedar. The nice sweet aroma. I never would have truly known if I didnt cut it!!! Problem solved
