      Cottonwood?  It's a poplar like wood in the Eastern US variety, and a darkish poplar in the Black variety that is more prevalent in the Western US.  Softish, easy to work, the black variety is not terribly durable and neither is resistant to rot or insect, sorta like poplar.  When green, they have a disagreeable smell, but seasoned wood is used with food containers.

      You can't go past ironbark.
      Cut it to shape when it's fresh cut and let it dry.
      It just gets harder.
      By the time it's dried 15 years you can't drive a nail into it.
