Topic tags/keywords: wood species

Hello all,
Please help settle a bet. ID the species of wood on top of this antique drafting table. My father-in-law and I have a growler of beer riding on it. Thanks!

Does look like a mix. A few board look like red oak and ash. Others don’t.

Sideways Wood? :-D

All kidding aside, I dunno. Some looks like Ash, some looks like Maple, and some maybe even Fir. Hard to tell with that low light, ambered finish, and lack of closeup detail.
