Where has your second photo gone Roscoe? I was looking for your photo gallery and I don't see that either!

Go to your "Profile" page and set up your photo gallery link by adding 13536 in the field. That way we can go directly there without doing a lot of fishing around. :D

Well I guess you added the photos since.

Dig into the bark of that darn thing with a knife and see if it yellowish. That stick of wood looks like it's been laying around a few months. You sure that ain't some kind of walnut? :D
Move'n on.

SD are you picking on my stick of wood? :D I didn't feel like walking through the snow to get a photo when I have a part of the same tree in the pole barn. That stick is going to be my anvil base. :)

I did not find any additional photos, but with that little bit shown and described I do not think black locust. It looks like elm, Siberian Elm. The bark matches some trees I walk by every day.
Trees grown in a dry climate.

Does Siberian elm have narrow sapwood? All we have in my area is American and it has wide sap and lighter colored heart. Elm bark usually has layered color differences and ribbon pore figure on the end grain. Can't see the pores in the images.
Move'n on.

In dry areas the sap wood can be narrow. Plus that bark is thick typical of s. elm in an arid climate.
Not as good as b.l. for fire wood but still will work.
I will try to get some bark pictures today of each.

You can sub these for the full-size pics from your gallery by modifying your post. Didn't see these thumbnails in your gallery. :)

That's the black locust bark I see up here. And I don't see that in the original post.

The elm bark posted is pretty typical of a large diameter elm you see up here , even though we only have American Elm. When they die it slips off the trunk in large sheets.
Move'n on.

Nope.  Elm has spiral grain and is a bad actor when it comes to splitting. 

The picture you posted does not offer enough detail of the end grain nor the bark to make an ID.  Hopefully you can get the picture posting thing worked and give us a little more detail.

Looks like you haven't set up your own gallery yet. I think that is the first step.  :)

He's got a gallery, but I fed him the wrong number for the link from here.

Should be 13536  not 103536
