    Tucan wood?? Any ideas, suggestions, or ?????

    Had a man drop off a 4X4 about 3' long. He claimed it was Tucan (sp?). Am I spelling it correctly and does anyone know anything about this type of wood? From what I could see under the security light it looks to be a dark wood. Will cut an end the width of a blade tomorrow to get a look at the fresh grain and coloring. Any and all help is appreciated.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    As a start, might it be Black Tupelo / Black Gum? Is it from your part of the country?

    Unlikely, but interesting. Who knew?
