I picked up some live edge pine slabs from a person. They gave me these two different looking boards. Not sure what it is. I’ve never saw grain like this

Here’s another picture of one. I tried searching online and haven’t found anything that resembles it. I’m gonna make them into coffee tables anyways haha but was just wondering if anyone knew what type of wood it is.

If it is common in your location I would say pecan. Some of the pattern may be spalting.

A better photo. I live in upstate ny. I was told maybe hardack . But I’ve never seen them this wide. I was just curious if anyone could help me out. They are for myself so I really don’t care lol I am super excited to get them sanded down and finish put on them. I think they will be breathtaking. I love the spalted look to them.

Could be Hickory. The bark may give a clue.
