  1. Good afternoon, Any ideas? I am thinking, Pic 1 Alder and Cherry Pic 2 Ash Pic 3 / 4 Cherry Pic 5 / 6 not sure, bark is fissured with triangular shapes Still not sure about the chunk in the background (with the saw cut in it) in pic 6. TIA guys.
  2. Brill! Only the flask is a bin! (just asked your Mrs) lol!
  3. Hello, Any ideas on these 3?
  4. Hi all, Would I be correct in saying that the first picture is Yew and the second is Cherry? I don`t know the third / fourth though, the fourth is the end grain of the third by the way. TIA.
  5. Good morning, Updated picture showing end grains. Plus a few more bits I found. The surfaces appear shiny due to a coat of PVA.
  6. Brilliant! I was 90% sure the one with lenticels was cherry (bottom right), had an idea about apple too, due to a faint scent whilst cutting it. Never new the poplar though. The bottom left has a fibrous bronze coloured inner bark.
  7. Thankyou. Will update the picture tomorrow to show the end grain.
  8. Hi everyone, I am new to the forum. Thought I should enroll as I have a few questions someone may be able to answer for me. I do a bit of woodturning as a hobby and I have had some logs for about 6 months. I would love to know for sure what they are. I have made guesses and looked online and in books etc but I find it difficult to identify wood by bark alone. Obviously much easier when you can see the leaves too! I have attached a picture. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
