Hi All,
I am asking if any one can identify this piece of wood. It is 3'4" long by about 4 1/2" wide and 1 3/4" thick. It is fairly heavy.
Thank you in advance.
Don W

From those pictures it looks like a piece of American black walnut, but the light is making it look a lot like cherry as well.

Is it a darker brownish colour or more golden brown?

Edit

Just had another look now the sun has gone in and I'd definitely say cherry too.

American cherry. The pale wood is the sapwood. If you look at the growth rings on the end you should see that the pale wood is furthest from the centre of the tree
