Trying to identy some boards that were part of a mixed lot of wood I bought 20 years ago. I took a piece to a hardwood store but they did not know what it was. They kind of thought hard maple but said it was to heavy.

It’s grain is very similar to straight grained hard maple. The growth rings are really thin. Fine sanding produces a satin waxed like finish. It weights 52 pounds per cubic foot or has a specific gravity of 0.84 verses 42-45# or 0.72 for maple Color wise it is more of a tan without the whites or red browns of maple.
