being in arizona, and we don t have a whole lotta the stuff you folks have back east of the divide, a location when asking questions of this type, might narrow down the answers, otherwise as a wise man said once. “alder”

Is that wise man one of those who were wandering around Jerusalem on camels? They used mud and dung to build things.

A quick check of the Home page shows TooTall is from Tennessee. So it is unlikely that the wood is “alder”. Besides Alder doesn t have a thick layer of sap wood as seen in these images. .

probably so, lesb, i don’t have a whole lotta knowledge of the goods back east, but i can say, when i was in atlanta a few weeks ago, i did visit a couple local sawyers, and boy howdy, like xmas in june, for sure, managed to make a contact and i’m wanting some box elder. for sure.

oh yeah, good luck with the guessing game, sure is purday wood for sure
