Topic tags/keywords: question walnut oak milling

Hi Folks,

I saw in Craigslist a ad for hardwood lumber .. so I took a drive about 1/2 hr from my house.

What I found was a Master Woodworker shop, and small lumber yard. The master woodworker recently passed away .. and the family hired some one to sell the wood..

He was selling it for $5 a board, so I filled up my Mazda Tribute with as much wood as I could carry.

When I got home and started sorting out the boards, I found I had several nice 4×4 White Oak. But the rest of the wood .. I really don’t know what it is.

Could you folks take a look at this link:

http://stellabotte.smugmug.com/Woodworking/What-wood-are-these/27772862_p8Czk4/

some of the boards have captions like “Sample 1 “

Others have numbers wriiten on the board. I am especially interest in the dark thick wood .. I think it might be Black Walnut ?

The other one .. its almost light pink .. with writing on the board about China … I have no idea what that is.

Thanks folks..

My guess is that you have walnut, cherry, maple and possibly some black locust

The one that says Chinese Talo (Popcorn) is Chinese Tallow wood (aka popcorn wood)

Pics 1,4,5,8,9,10 are maple. Pics 8 and 9 are curly maple (nice!!). Chinese tallow, Triadica sebifera, is a trerribly invasive tree that is taking over the wetlands in South Mississippi and Louisiana.

Pics 2 and 3 may be walnut, but they look more tropical to me.
