Long Horned Beetles (Coleoptera Cerambycidea)

This fella was in the bottom of a bag of wood we purchased for our fire.  Some of the pieces of wood had large channels bored into them, which are characteristic of this beetle.  The beetles antenna, which are often as long if not longer than there bodies, and have an almost wood turned look about them, help identify them.
