    Freshly-cut locust is HEAVY. Dunno abt. poplar though...

    But your picture does make it clear- that there is DEFINITELY free wood. No question.

    Here's how you can tell; look at the flat cut-side of a round and if there is a little "pinhole" there in the center then it is Ash. I have found this to hold true time and time again.

    Does this saw make my Ash look big? :p Largest slab in back is 4.5 x 15 x 19 inches.Will be a great seat for a stout footstool or small bench in 3 years or so....Most likely I'll resaw it again in a year or so.

    Useful for sure but a cushion on it helps a lot! I like the "hot seat" cushions.

    No way. Looks like my "ash" is wrong again. Thanks for the help. Appears as though I got some ash. I can't believe it, but there was a pinhole at the center of every round. And, I split some and it split, suprisingly, easy. All the poplar I have ever split is tough to split with the axe. Thanks guys.
