I have been getting this wood for years and could never find out its name.
It is very hard and burns easily when cut . It has a yellowish tint and is quite shiny. I don't think it is exoctic, because I would never get that stuff for free.


Thanks in advance

I'm not all that good at identifying wood species, but that looks a lot like Ash to me.

Identify wood

It is very hard and does have a certain smell ... It burns easily, I have worked with poplar many times and this is twice as hard as poplar. Heavy wood also. It is as hard as hickory but less than purple heart or ipe.
Thanks for the help.
Dennis
