I really appreciate the effort you take to work with the wood, cutting it to enhance what is there rather than to try to force it to conform to some standard mechanical process.  That's what distinguishes a craftsman.  Keep sharing those pictures.

Thanks man!  There are so many beautiful aspects of wood that many people never see.  Wait until i post my slab collection.  It's a collection beautiful slabs with knobs and other features that I intend to incorporate into my house build.  I will put them on walls and plaster around them so they look like they are growing out of the walls.  Maybe put pegs in some of hanging coats etc.  I like practical art too.

I believe it is a red oak.  One suspect is black oak.  The characteristic orange inner back will not show if the tree was dead.  It could be shumard oak.  Small chance that it is southern red oak.

My first reaction was chestnut oak.  I'm not sure you have them in Ind.  I've cut millions of bf of chestnut oak, and you can logs that look like that.  Chestnut oak may or may not have occlusion.  It doesn't look like the black oak in my area.  Another red oak you may have is scarlet oak, but the ones I've seen are usually a bit smoother. 

Cherry leaf could be shingle oak.  We don't have them in my area, but I saw them in the western part of PA.

Shingle oak makes sense given the area that the tree was found.  That is most likely what it is.  Shingle oak is a red oak.

As I said earlier, I think all those small branches we had to cut first with cherry leaves I think were small cherries that were laid over and snapped by the Oak when it fell.  It was just not clear that they were not from the Oak. Because I looked at the exposed pink wood of the base of the tree, I thought it was cherry and assumed that those branches with leaves were the still living part of the oak.   I vaguely remember cutting some branches with wilted leaves that I think were from the oak.  They were small, but I think they were typical oak leaves.  It fooled me in multiple ways until I could really examine the wood.
