    Can someone identify this wood for me? I picked it up while camping , somebody left it behind from their campfire wood. I think it is from Florida as that is where I found it. Thanks for your input.

    Thinking it is red oak with some nice splating.

        Scott & Carole! A neighbor said it may be Blackjack Oak which I think is a member of the Red Oak family. Not sure what I'll use it for yet but it sure is different to me.
