Can anyone identify this wood? It came from a house in South Texas that was made in 1910. When I found it, it was in a weathered condition and had asphalt paper and slap staples on it.

Thanks!

Looks like figured cherry to me. Neat little table.

The grain is what throws me off. It’s unlike anything I’ve seen before
