I've got several on my property that are probably 8-10" as well.  I consider taking one for turkey calls because they're said to be so dense.

Since I had fun making WDH scratch his head on this post before I think it is time for another!

My very first impulsive reaction, without the wood brain engaged, was something birchy but that is much too easy given your penchant for being sneaky…. :).

Birchy you say? Don’t move from that tree, keep on barking!

I had some 12" wide short boards of serviceberry once. It didn't have much colored streaks like the example, actually quite plain and uninspiring. Hard indeed but the powder post beetles found it in the lumber shed and chewed it to sawdust in record time.
