I had some guy drop wood off and he gave me what he said is apple wood but I dont know if it is.
It was yellow and when it sat in sun it turned reddish.
Anyone know if it is apple?

Apple typically doesn’t have grain that is that straight. Apple has lots of branched and knots. The yellow reminds me of locust or poplar. It also looks kinda like maybe some oak mixed in. I’d be surprised if it was apple.

do you have something you could get a piece smoldering a bit , the smoke smell may give you a hint. or maybe not but worth a shot.

I have seen quit a bit of oak trees that had bark resembling that bark picture. I have been in apple orchards a lot but never looked at their branches. Just the fruit lol
