Went to the land fill the other day to get some wood for a turning project. I found a nice piece about 4’ long and around 5” in diameter. I thought it was maple, at first, but after turning some spoons and allowing them to dry for a week, I think the wood is something else. The dried turnings are quite light and sand easily. The dried spoons are whitish with some yellow/orange streaks. There were no leaves on/around the pile of wood this came from. Hopefully someone here might be able to help me identify the species.
There were almost symmetrical bug/worm holes around the log but these holes only penetrated the bark. Not into the sapwood or heart wood. The tree was growing in south central Pennsylvania.
