Trying to figure out i thought it was white oak
thats good looking wood for ash? red elm?
Ya ive done ash im not thinking its ash. It was really wet. Ive done cottonwood and it reminds me of it. But the heart was darken than this
Ya i think you on to something with the res elm. Now is this good wood to make things with or is it better as firewood
The bark looked like ash to me but the wood color and grain doesn’t. Nice looking wood.
Looks like elm to me. Did it smell bad? I've never personally milled elm but heard it smells terrible.
No it did not smell bad. Now you got me thinking it might not be elm. It was very wet and fiberous
I'm not familiar with different varieties of ash but I've never seen the color go that far towards the sap wood. I've seen the dark heart wood but usually at least 6-12" of light wood near the bark.
I'm pretty confident it's a variety of elm. Elms bark looks very much like some oaks to me.
Agree 110%. Siberian elm has thicker bark than Slipper(red) or American. It's dark like walnut almost but the live ones that I've cut down are really wet it seems.
that bark sure does not look like elm in picture , least wise the varieties around here.
Here's Siberian elm bark from google. I think we have our answer looks just like the above bark.
ok you win.
What's it smell like?
There is a cross cut for Elm....
Ya im almost posrive its a elm of some sort. This is ash i have done. Reminds me of the rolling stone tounge. Now this is in pa to keep that in mind.
