Default Cherry and Mystery Wood

I got some wood from a barn that was being torn down, some cherry and some wood the barn owner told me was black walnut, but I am not so sure. When I got it cleaned up it looked more like oak to me. It's VERY heavy wood.
The pictures are before and after cleanup. I have to resaw most of the boards as they are 2+ inches thick. Good thing I bought that big old bandsaw. The wood was all free and there is more to be had but I don't have much room for storage. I think I got all the cherry though, 6 planks that were being used for a stall partition.
I also got some old doors that I think are just pine but again not sure. I doubt the pictures will help much in identifying it but thought I'd give it a shot.

BJ I checked out your link and some of the info Keith posted and I am now leaning toward it probably being Ash. Still I am not complaining! Free lumber is ALWAYS nice

It sure is a nice haul Deb, but Dave, if I could arrange for a similar haul to be dropped off at YOUR place, will you promise to start making things, anythings!
