I knew I'd seen something like that before. I just couldn't place it.

Heh, I recently got a few of those. Haven't done anything with them yet.
Your contraption might work better with a good flashlight at night.

Identify this deadwood?

I couldn't find a good thread to post this under, so if someone has a better suggestion, please let me know.
We've been harvesting lots of ash for firewood lately thanks to the EmeraldAshBorer so we thought that's what this was. After cutting it down and running it through the log splitter, it is definitely not ash. The wood is super dense and very heavy, kinda red, almost orange, and it's so stringy it fights the logsplitter wedge almost to the end. Ash tends to pop apart as soon as the thick part of the wedge gets to it.
Also note the pic without the bark. The EAB leaves a distinctive, wandering track when it eats away the cambium. The bug that killed these trees leaves a radiating starburst type of track under the bark. The standing dead tree's bark will fall off in big sheets as a result, just like the EAB's victims.
These trees are long dead and perfectly seasoned for firewood, but without the leaves it's really hard to tell what it is.
Any ideas?

North central Ohio, close to CedarPoint.
They are very tall and very little branching, but they were in a wooded lot.
This one was just over a foot in diameter at the base, and probably atLeast 40, 50, or 60 foot tall.

Reading about guitar building they say there is two kinds of Ash...

Quote:
Ash can come from various sources. You have hard ash, which has a lot of bite, almost like maple, but with more (and chunkier) lows. Hard ash is generally speaking on the heavier side. Swamp ash, on the other hand, is much lighter, with less compression in the tone. You will get an opener sound with lots of highs and upper mids that cut through the mix like a hot knife through butter. The difference between a billet cut from the top or the bottom of the tree makes a huge difference in tone. A high-cut piece of hard ash might be closer to the sound you’re looking for than a lower cut of swamp ash. This goes for all woods, but in my experience this is even stronger the case with ash than other types.
