Nice Utility guys deadened their chainsaws on this monster to keep clear the power lines on my way to work. Saw it and had to have it. Pulled into a driveway across the street from it. Grabbed it and dropped it in my trunk. It was bigger than I thought and soooolid. hard to tell from the pics, but it is a very nice yellow orange.
16 inch ruler for scale... Now I have to figure out what to do with it.
definitely NOT a carving wood, but great for handles, shapes, inlays, etc.
It has the highest BTU of any american hardwood which should tell you it's hardness as well I do have a chunk of basswood(lime) curing too from a felled tree of a neighbor and are a great wood for carving.
