Hello, would anyone recognize the wood? Elm? The same wood on both pictures:

Thanks!

It’s not elm.
Looks like hickory.

Need a close-up pic of the end grain. Elm has wavy bands of pores in the latewood.

Looks like some birch I’ve had.

The pics don’t show much detail, but it looks like some of the butternut I’ve worked. Is it light and fairly soft or is it dense and heavy? It doesn’t look like any of the red elm I’ve used.
