This is what I scrounged last week off Craigslist list. It's mostly red oak and black cherry. In with that pile is some wood my BIL gave me and he told me it was oak. When we were loading it I was pretty sure it wasn't oak but I figured at least it doesn't look like something crappy like poplar, it was god awful heavy. Well after splitting it I believe it is poplar. The weight came from the water that was squeezing out when I split it. What do you guys think? BTW this is for the 2010-11 season.
