I happened to pick up some large and some small Craig’s List special lumber a while back for chump change, under $20 for the whole lot including some large stock and marked cherry. It’s the unmarked stuff that is bothering me. I don’t even want to take a saw to it until I know what it is.

I know large pieces of certain kinds of wood are rare these days so I don’t want to squander the size by making halving the big stuff and not knowing what to do with the small stuff is also an issue.

Thanks in advance

(1)———10’ x 7” x 1 3/8”

(2)———- 4’, 1” x 1 15/16” x 8 1/4 Think it’s cherry only due to the CHY inked on the side.

The water damage did not happen in my custody….. just saying.

(3)———7 1/2” x 1 3/4” x 2”

Might add more later…

Thanks again in advance.

Looks like a lot of cherry to me, except that 2nd pic, that looks like walnut.

1 is walnut with a lot of sap wood.
2 is cherry
3 not really sure. The knot looks like what I see often in walnut, but the sap wood to the right is a bit odd.

Thanks for helping me identify my lumber.

Now all I have to do is figure out how to process it and what to make with it.

I am thinking about an entry table 3’, 6” Long x 10” deep trimmed with figured maple.

Something like this:
