it was a huge pile of hardwood flooring( true 1” thick) that I found at the dump haha. I planed it down and made a table top out of it but I dont know what it is? I think maybe the dark red is lacewood? But im not sure. None of it was fun too cut thats for sure

My first thought was Hickory, but rest of the pix not so much.

Looks like there is some curl in some of the boards. I would guess that to be tiger maple?

I agree with the hickory and maple. I don’t think the wormy piece on the frame on the right is either hickory or maple. In 1 picture it looks like oak, but not in the first picture.

Table wood?? My wife said recycled wood! The piece on the right in 1st pic looks very much like Chestnut but I’m not positive. Nice work!

The one you referred to as lacewood looks more like sycamore.
