It would still be great if someone recognized the bark.
Hi Paul I cut lot's of wild cherry in illinois yr's ago. Most of them grow along the road banks and don't get very big. They get started with bird's dropping the seed's. Lot's of farmers spray and kill them . Better yet smell it it will have a cherry smell. Just like what i call normel cherry.

A couple of days ago I got home from work and found 3 short logs by the garage door ... yesterday I trimmed and cut out a blank, then got one bowl almost finished.

I have nothing but guesses as to what kind of tree this came from though -- it's about 6 inches diameter, kind of punky in places, and has a nice contrast between the sapwood and heartwood. (Most visible in the first pic, which has the corner of the trimming from the round blank I cut bottom-center of the photo.)

Thanks!
I made a few post's . Does it have a cherry smell that will give you a clue.

Well, it doesn't smell like cherries to me -- but my sinuses are normally clogged up, and "regular" cherry wood doesn't smell like cherries to me either

I'm happy to go with "wild cherry" -- thanks everyone
