  • Help identifying wood type?

    I’m looking for help identifying this species of wood.

    Thanks, Dave

    A photo of the bark side would be useful too Dave.

      Sort of looks like a Black Walnut branch.

        Well, that’s actually the trunk, and I’d agree, but looks like a lot of sap wood

          Was it quite hard?
          Kinda looks like hop hornbeam to me (aka ironwood) but that's quite thick if it is.
          Your wood's bark doesn't appear to be as "shaggy" as the logs I've seen, but there are definite similarities.

          EDIT: How wide is it?

            Based on the heart and the bark my first guess would have been Apple wood, but the light colour seems a bit too light for Apple ....

              Roughly 13 in. It’s very stringy and wet. I’m starting to think elm

                  Bark looks like Hickory.

                        Not Apple or Walnut, bark is off for Apple, the dark hearth is off for Walnut, it looks more purple than the brown in the picture, the bark looks right for Elm and so does the wood and dark color in there.

                        The hickories I have turned have a different bark and wood, but I only turned a couple species, shellbark and shagbark are not like that, and neither is Bitternut/Pignut Hickory, I have turned it, and have pictures of it.

                        Im not certain, but I keep it as Elm, just IMO.

                        White Elm bark.
