Butternut?
« on: July 14, 2019, 01:43:03 PM »
I知 buying logs from someone nearby who is building a lake and pushing over a lot of trees.  I picked out cherry, hickory, walnut and what I thought was a hackberry from afar.  When I cut it today I realized it is not hackberry.  I知 thinking it is butternut.  I致e never known what butternut looked like.  I hope I知 right and it is butternut.  I値l take some pictures the next time I知 out there.  Unfortunately most of the leaves are either gone or very shriveled up and dried out.  There痴 a cherry tree that forks at about 9 high, but below that is a log that痴 about 24 diameter.  I知 excited about that one.

The cherry tree fork if you could saw it such that the blade is centered for all 3 ends and it has no bark inclusions would be a delight for some bowl turners.  Trying to find a bowl turner that would be willing to pay for it, now that is something else.  Don't ask me how I know!

I've never seen a butternut in the wild, but easily 1/2 of people who think they have butternut, do not! Tons of turners in St. Louis. http://turnedtreasuresllc.com/wstl2/about-us/contact-us/

The 2 photos I sent are Butternut. Someday, maybe I'll figure out how to send a post with 1 photo.

Ok, I went back to visit the logs I知 getting.  This is definitely not butternut.  I think it痴 hackberry like I originally thought.

It is hackberry-esque.  Looks a bit like sweetgum, too.

The wood is all the same color.  No noticeable heartwood.  Very white.

I have seen some BIG hackberry that lost the warty look like the bottom of that log has.
