What do I have, found in Barn
« on: December 03, 2019, 09:59:20 PM »
Hi All, We purchased a new property and need to take down a old Barn that is getting bad. Found about 20 boards in the Hay loft in a corner. Barn was built around 1900. I think these boards may be Mulberry but no expert so any help would be greatly appreciated. We live in the Missouri Ozarks.

Looks like the first cut and unsold live edge boards ever made.

Eastern red cedar.
I made my first trip to Stockton a few months ago.  I had never fished in Lake Stockton before, but I definitely will again.  We caught lots of great smallmouth bass and even a walleye.

I like the way you think!
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

If nothing else I'm always a good last resort or the guy to hold up as a bad example

Thank you all, Looks like Cedar is the winner. Have cut a lot of Cedar but this looked different, I guess because so old. Rest of the Barn looks like Oak and Chestnut and some Walnut. Going to try to save what I can. 
You are right, the Fishing is why we purchased the Property to retire and start fishing. Will probably have more questions in the future as there is also a old store to come down built in 1860. It may be more than I can handle, we will see.

Thank you all for the Help and have a great Christmas and New year.

If it smells like cedar then it is cedar. Based on the picture , it could be apple wood or pear as fruit wood has dark hearts and white sap wood and varied colors at times-but it's hard and doesn't smell like cedar.
