    I would think Sicky would be more of a rougher, stringier grain, no? This looks like a pretty smooth, clean split for it but who knows? Inside grain almost looks like a Poplar or lighter hardwood but he said it is heavy and stringy....

    This is a good one! :)

    maybe the wood was beat-up like said earlier.

    Sycamore does seem to have a more modeled look then the OPs pic.

    Sycamore usually has a darker heart-wood....and the bark varies between brown, green, and white. The white you see in the pic is where the bark is gone.

    Still hackberry.

    sorry jags... I will take some more.. I PROMISE!

    I looked at the leaves, and looked online and I am convinced that it's hackberry. Tight, stringy white wood, perfect match for leaves and the owner described the tiny berries. :)
