    First gut based on the gnarlyness, yellowness, and weird (not exactly sweet?) smell was Black Locust. Bark, if it does come off, is kind of stringy where the bark meets the wood. Very heavy? Definitely black locust.

    Is there a dingus amongus?

    I'm not calling anyone a dingus since I'm the one who needed help. :)

    I probably shouldn't say a sweet smell - that wasn't really accurate - just different than most of my splits. Didn't smell bad, just different.
