There is a Japanese Walnut species but I think that is more like butternut than black walnut. I think that they grow english walnut for their nuts in China at least so that is also a possibility

One more thought…Acacia is sometimes call Asian Walnut by flooring companies so it could be a possibility.

Thats what they make Walderf Salad out of.

It does look like a type of walnut to me. I heard the asian counties were buying up all of our walnut.

I can see two hooks pressing down vertically at the back of the log, and up a little higher one hook that is not being used.

What aspect of your proposed use of this wood requires that you know the species? You can build your project using the woodworking skills you have acquired on other woods. You can call the wood whatever you want – very few will know the difference.

Last year I was hiking in the mountains of Japan and came upon a woodworker’s shop. There was an interesting beam near the door. I asked the proprietor, “Do you speak English?”
“No” he relied.
“I was just curious if this beam is oak,” I said.
“Yes, it’s oak,” he said (in English)
It was (maybe) 2” x 10” x 15 feet, with not a single knot, crack, discoloration or blemish.
Why did I care if I could name it?
