Default Anybody know this wood

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.

Experience is when everything comes out right, but no one knows why
In my shop theory and practice are united. Nothing comes out right and nobody knows why.

Does the yellow come off it when its wet? Could be black locust.

That sure looks like Black Locust. When machining, does it have a very distinct smell?

That first pic looks a lot like the Poplar I just cut for my table.
