Topic tags/keywords: wood id oak bark grain

Was just curious if someone could tell me what kind of wood this is? Looks to be some species of oak? Cut down in Northwest Georgia.

First, why don’t you consider a different screen name? We already have a ‘wood whisperer’ and he is a talented artist, experienced woodworker, and published author.

Just a suggestion.

I would go out on a limb and say Live Oak. (it’s definitely not alder)

paint the ends to help prevent checking, let it sit for 5 years, then make something nice out of it.

It’s a little to tell from the pics, but I’m thinking black walnut

I cut down a black cherry tree that was hit by lightning several years ago
and now that I think about it, it is very, very similar to what the OP has.
so I change my answer to Black Cherry (but “might” be Live Oak).

paint the ends to help prevent checking, let it sit for 5 years, then make something nice out of it.

Have your say...
