I'm thinkin plum. Got a whole bin of it in the garage...the bark looks pretty darn similar. Does it have a lot of small white dots on it? It's for sure not cherry, that has a rougher bark

Posting a pic of the end of the log might help.

I have plum, cherry, & apple stacked in the yard and a peach tree growing.

I'll go take a look and my stash to compare.

Chris here's a few pics from the plum tree I (Bob from Smokey O's) cut up last week if that helps. I split it so you can compare the inside wood. Inside looks the same.
