I think we'ld be barking mad NOT to pick pecan, lol ...

My neighboor has a paper pecan tree, it looks quite different, but the pecans are very easy to shell by hand. :)

Pecan would have been too easy

The bark certainly does look similar to pecan, but you'll have to look a little deeper into that first clue.

Soooo... You have a wet farm and a former log which is now in pieces all prepared for turning. I know that it is not pecan and that it appears is wood of the photogenic variety. Got it.

OK....

I've been googling texas tree identification. What I learned is that most bark looks like bark.

I'm going with camphor. Not because I can say that I think it looks a lot like what I can see in on-line photos, but because of this: http://www.penturners.org/forum/atta...secondload.jpg

Unfortunately I am going to be throwing out very uneducated guesses.

I was going to say Mesquite based on the Texas locale but I don't think that is it.

If I'm not correct with camphor (very possible), then my next guess is that it is one of those Alumilite trees that all the fancy blanks come from :)
