Can you help identify this wood?

A guy has a pretty large stack of this in his yard, he does not know what kind of wood it is, but I can pick up as much as I want and do some milling on my bandsaw and make small pieces I can use for small projects.

Might help if you could slice off some pieces, so the grain shows.

Looks like an Oak...Post Oak, maybe?

It helps to know the general area where it's located.

yep, white oak

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

No doubt that it's a species of White Oak. While the bark looks like Post Oak to me (a White Oak species) it could also be Bur Oak, Chestnut Oak or a White Oak hybrid of those.

Thanks everyone, looks like I will be making a trip to get a load. Probably should get some bandsaw blades too, I think I will have lots of wood to saw up!
