Name That Wood - Anyone?
I was picking up some live edge slabs from a logger near Hammondsport (Upstate New York Finger Lakes Region) a couple weeks ago and noticed an interesting curved piece standing in a corner. Someone in the area had given it to him but he did not know the species. I'll be making a curved hall table with it but wold like to know what it is.
It's tight grained, as heavy as white oak, as dense as maple and the bark is pretty rough, covered with some lichens. The bark peeled off very easy to reveal a yellowish colored underside, almost fiberous or stringy in nature. Attached are some photos. Any thoughts? Thanks.
