All wood was harvested from Central MD. This first picture the wood virtually has no bark, more like a skin. The wood appears quite white and very dense. The outside of the tree has ridges and grooves that look almost serpent-like.
The second picture has wood with a sharp flakey bark and the wood coloration is cherry like.
The third picture wood has thin very textured bark and the wood is quite dense and smooth. If it weren’t for the contrasting colors of the heartwood through the sapwood, I would think it would be a type of maple. But that color is throwing me off.
The last picture wood has a stark difference in color from the heartwood to the sapwood and the outside of the bark is covered where many small branches shot out. The bark is kind of stringy and wood itself is dense.
I also picked up a bunch of Sycamore and hopefully some black walnut coming next week, but I can easily ID those woods.
Thanks your help.
