    Firstly hi.
    Took up woodworking last year just as a hobby. Picked up some logs left from cutting down 3 years earlier. Just short trunk sections – sitting in garage for 9 months. Out of curiosity I split one last month’s and rough planed a few pieces. In the surrounding area there are sycamore, ash, Rowan, silver birch and apple. Embarrassingly I can’t even remember what it looked like but I don’t recall whirligigs, fruit or petalled flowers.

    Some pics attached including bark.

    Grateful for anything but it’s not crucial. 😉

    Don’t bother 😉 It doesn’t really matter what it is for an internal project. It’s hardish, not bad looking and I’ll just call it sycamore anyway.
    Might do a panel guage, knob n tote and a lid for something for starters.

    Looks like birch to me, almost sure. That’s from the bark, but the wood looks diseased or rotten.
