You know the provenance of this beech so it is unquestionably American Beech. The European product is invariably steamed to stabilize it. The result is a pink colored wood. I never used any so I don't know how long the pink lasts. Reds in wood tend to be not light stable.

If you want more beech (European) Atlanta Hardwoods can fix you up with any quantity (might be some minimum quantity). We bought from them occasionally off the wholesale yard NE of Atlanta. They have a retail operation somewhere in Atlanta but never been there to see what they stock.

I got a board of beech once in a pack of steamed walnut. It was predictably brown. I have had it in inventory for decades. I need to find something to do with it.
