    Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? Looks like typical WV cherry to me.

    Jim,Knot even close so no ceegar…..Cherry rots growing and also rots after felling….this wood does not rot after felling…..well not for 50 years or so without treatment.

    Don’t know if it’s a lighting trick, but the small log to the left of the large one seems to have a yellowish cast and looking at the enlarged photo shows very fine saw marks on all the cuts. This suggests a very hard wood and Osage Orange comes to mind. As a kid, I had a lot of experience cutting/trying to cut such since we had a ton of it on our property and my dad was always using for various woodworking projects.
