    Nice score. Was it free?? I'm seeing ash but Idon't see enough maple around here, except silver maple, to say maple for sure. But if the rest of the gang says maple, who am I to go against the grain, as it were.;)

    Wow! You'll not need wood for several years to come! Nice!

    And wood, even wood given at no charge, is never free. It has to be cut, transported, split, stacked, carried into the house and its remains must be desposed of in a proper manner. Nope, ain't much in this old world world that's "free."

    ok I need to rethink what kind of wood this is. I thought it was ash from what it looked like on my trailer.
    Now not sure

    I'm gonna say hard maple, to be sure give a split a lick (yes, a lick). Is it bleeding alot at the cut ends?
    If it's sugar maple, it'll taste sweet. I make maple syrup, trust me.
    No I'm not nuts, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night...... ;)

    This thread is taking a funny direction but I have always said that it is easier to identify wood by smell and taste than bark or grain for some species. Oak is bitter and Sasafrass will taste wintergreen - sugar maple will be sweet - obviously.

    Never even heard of "Doosan" till the other day watching that mining show on the TV and the Dakota guys got a Doosan FEL and Excavator. I was thinking what kind of cheap China made chit is that... I was thinking of those knock off "tractors in a crate" but apparently Doosan is a BIG company. And they say TV will never teach you anything?!

    Just like Stihl saws, best saw made in another country
    I have 2 Doosan excavators that are GREAT machines.
    Oh I have a 1988 Cat D3 Dozer that is made in JAPAN and stamped on serial number plate but I bought it NEW from local Cat dealer
    And last thing, Doosan owns BOBCAT equipment :cool:
