The bark looks like hickory to me. I forgot did you say it was hard or soft ? If it is soft, sorry you got me.

Thanks Daren but yes it is real soft and white as can be. I think it can be safely said that it is willow, I was overwhelmed by the amount of people that were interested enough in trying to identify this wood on a few different forums. Sometimes it's hard to tell what people are really interested in. Thanks for your help. Mitch
