I’m horrible at identifying wood and this is coming from one of several pallets that I’ve knocked down and have had stored in my attic of my garage for the past three years. I pulled down a couple pieces just to see what the humidity of the wood was and just out of curiosity to take a look at some of what I got. This wood has a very straight grain but it has a very distinct cross-grain almost like a Lacewood is when I’d have to describe it like. And of course my searches on the internet have brought up nothing so I’m hoping someone here may be able to help me identify it. Considering it came from a pallet it could be from anywhere in the world.!!

Sycamore would be my first guess, as well. Quarter sawn sycamore has the distinctive rays and I’ve got several pieces from a stack of dunnage.
