First, why don’t you consider a different screen name? We already have a ‘wood whisperer’ and he is a talented artist, experienced woodworker, and published author.

Just a suggestion.

I would go out on a limb and say Live Oak. (it’s definitely not alder)

paint the ends to help prevent checking, let it sit for 5 years, then make something nice out of it.

It’s a little to tell from the pics, but I’m thinking black walnut

I cut down a black cherry tree that was hit by lightning several years ago
and now that I think about it, it is very, very similar to what the OP has.
so I change my answer to Black Cherry (but “might” be Live Oak).

paint the ends to help prevent checking, let it sit for 5 years, then make something nice out of it.
