Neighbor was throwing this wood away and it looked like poplar to me.

And I thought this was oak, but it didn’t check as bad as I was expecting, so now I’m not sure.

The first three pics are black locust. The last two are white oak.

doing some more research on this, apparently black locust glows under a blacklight. i’m going to slice a piece off and see what happens.

If you put it in a dish with alder, the alder will get devour the black locust while you’re not looking.

It is possible that the first one could be mulberry. Look at the growth ring closely with a hand lens or magnifying glass. The pores in mulberry are open. The pores in black locust are occluded with tyloses.

If your in western South Dakota, the first two pics would be Chinese Elm (Bulvarian Elm). It grows like a weed out here.

Someone was throwing it away. I’m guessing it was too close to either a fire or maybe a grill.

My plan was to replace the plastic with wood, but as it goes with most of my projects and ideas, you can see how that went. lol

Ha, I’m the same way. It takes me weeks to months to finish the simplest projects. Did you ever definitively figure out what the wood was?

No, not yet. As soon as I get out into the garage, I get distracted by the 45 other projects I want to knock out.

Wife hasn’t given me the “Are you going to move that wood” speech yet, so I still have some time.

Have your say...
