Then it’s probably not walnut. Walnut is not all that hard in my opinion. I don’t see much brown there. Again, hard to tell.

Since you live in the north. I would guess yellow Birch. The sap wood is ivory and the heart wood is pink. It also has some flecks kind of like white oak. But not quite as pronounced.

The unplaned wood seems like the flecks

Karson yes I am in the north but these are from wood pallets that I was given for fire wood but the wood looks to good to put in the fire and I am curious of the kind of wood it is.
