Hi all, I was out in the back woods with my son the other day building a “forest fort” clearing some smaller trees and brush out to make a base. Clearing this out, I couldn’t help but notice it was harder than the others around here, and of the heartwood which I loved.
I live in Nova Scotia, which is in eastern Canada, and typically we have spruce, pine, maple, birch, some oak and ash, some hemlock, and in lucky parts of the province, Ironwood.
I was wondering if this was a red maple perhaps? I’m more used to wood when buying it at the store dimensioned! There’s a fair bit more of thin growth like this, and wondering if it would be good for tool handles like chisels as I scored a big set (and other tools, axes, planes etc) at an estate sale. Any idea on wood species folks?
