Not certain but is there a reason you chose to spam the topic tags? Some people actually use them for searches and your post isn’t related to almost any of those. How about some courtesy?

Where is this wood located? This definitely a diffuse porous hardwood. Could be red or silver maple. Could be a poplar from the genus Populus.

derosa, this is stumped wood’s first post. I found those tags confusing at first also. Perhaps explaining them would be more welcoming to a new member and show a bit more courtesy.

I have no idea about the wood though.

Kay, point taken, I was trying to do a search and this was the first thing that popped up hence the response which may be a little harsh.

Maybe its spam wood. :) Whatever, it looks good and very usable. You might want to seal the ends before it cracks too much though.

Elm would be ring porous with large earlywood pores and small latewood pores. This wood is diffuse porous with all small, even sized pores.
