The metal shop bought a bunch of walnut. They had this mixed in with it. Any idea what this is? Not oak.

close ups of the long & end grain will help

It’s still Walnut. Just has a more unusual grain pattern.

Noticing that you are in Oklahoma I suspect that it might be Pecan or Hickory.

Looks like run of the mill(no pun intended) Walnut.

As was suggested by ChefHDAN, Take Some better, close up’s of both the long and end grain.

Elm is a fairly easy wood to identify with face(long) grain and has a VERY distinct endgrain.

That’s walnut. I recently bought a load from a guy who cleaned out a Mennonite who retired nine years ago who made railroad ties and mantles and other large planks out of whatever trees he could get. He flat sawed the rest of the tree 5/4 and kept it in racks. This guy I ran into had bought him out, about 3800 bd. ft. of cherry, walnut and hickory with a bit of oak. I bought a lot of the walnut, and a lot of it was flat sawn, and looked just like your plank. If you can keep it straight, it is beautiful finished.
