I picked up a couple of sticks of this in someone's trash. The bark is a light color with criss crossing fine lines of a darker color. The dark lines look interesting, but are not very durable.

Can anyone tell me how you finished this wood?

Crepe myrtle is in the "pyinma" family. Also called satin wood. It will take a good finish with most finishes. This is the time of year people cut back their crepe myrtles. We have a lot of it down here. If fresh cut it will need six to 8 months minimum to dry.
