Help identify boards
« on: May 14, 2017, 09:14:35 PM »
New to the form,   Cleaning out an old barn and found some ruff saw lumber I can't positively id. Planned some down to see the grain. Still little lost.  It's from north east Ohio been in the barn for a long time.

Has worm holes in but a light color tho the wood. Pots of the end grain are hard to see.  2-3 lbs on one board foot.  Trying to upload photos
Thanks jim

The hard part is done,the pictures are in your gallery.





I like to go to whatever post or start a new topic first to include a picture.Go to your gallery,it will open in a new window.Click onto your album,then click onto whatever picture you want,it will get bigger,than scroll down a little to find,Insert Image In Post,click onto that,click Yes and that is it. Some have to copy/paste the link to work.I like to hit the enter key at least once or twice to move the picture down away from what I am typing. The enter key really helps to leave some white space if posting more than one picture or posting a comment. Use the preview button to see how it looks and modify it if needed.
Notice the white space between the pictures.

Is the color of the newly planed wood olive green?  If yes then I'd say Tulip Poplar.
Anything someone can design, I can sure figure out how to fix!
If I say it\\\\\\\'s going to take so long, multiply that by at least 3!
