In the original post I would have to say no to butternut. The bark isn't right and neither is the wood. I have never seen all them grain patterns in butternut nor wide sapwood. Sapwood is very thin on butternut, up here anyway. And when you saw the wood the surface is a bit fuzzy or raised grain like with basswood. Wood has no characteristic odour. I know when I have handled walnut and butternut, the butternut had no smell but the walnut did have an odour. The wood of butternut is chestnut brown and a little bit of a pinkish hue sometimes.





Move'n on.

OK.  Next option is elm.  Looking closely at the end grain, are the latewood pores arranged in wavy bands?
Look for the wavy bands..........
