can't tell from the photo .. could just be old pine.
is it about 30" or so long ?
Got any more pics .. the underside etc.

As for what you do with it, it depends if you like it !
If you do, clean it and use it .. if you don't hide it back in the shed :-)

White sapwood, inclusions, dead knots, pine looking grain and colour, I'd say it was Yew wood at a guess.

I've cleaned it up, sanded. Sealed and waxed. I'm not an expert, hence the OP but the grain is too tight and it's to hard for pine I think. Someone suggested elm. .???...
