I have been given a few seasoned logs, saved by the late husband of a friend. He'd sealed the ends with hammerite, one piece is Laburnam (not shown) but the others look like Hawthorn or possible Yew? Unfortunately they're full of radial splits which go the full length so it's going to be interesting to see how they turn.

Thanks, I'm glad I wore my mask. Beautiful grain and colour but cracks do detract in my view.

Looks like Yew to me too. Here is a picture of some boards I cut from a Yew tree late last year:
