Help identifying species

Hi guys. Happy New year. Can y'all help me identify this board? I thought it was ash at first but I'm not sure. It smells kinda like box elder when I cut into it. Not a very pleasant smell. Third picture has water on it to show the grain more.

Thanks a lot,
Curt

Nope. Not cherry. It's very pale.

I have some bird cherry, which is much lighter than Black cherry. Bird cherry is like a light pink fruit wood, with fairly close grain texture. I don't think it is bird cherry either. It would help if you gave a picture of the end grain. To me it looks like Ash, which looks like a few other trees as well. The grain transition between growth rings looks like it is slightly open with small pores. An end grain shot might help.

Thanks. I'll upload a shot of the end grain much later tonight when I get home from work

I'm starting to think it's ash after all.

It's hard to see the pores, and the color is a bit dark, but it looks a little like ash.

These pics look like ash to me, the first ones kind of had a pinkish tint to them is why it looked like cherry

I would lean towards Honey Locust. Is the wood hard and heavy? RonG

Looks like Honey Locust to me. The end grain is what makes me lean that way as well as the color of the wood.
