Can anyone help me identify this wood?

I found it in my local restore today and like the birdseye pattern.

It seems piney to me.

It looks like old growth pine to me. The close ring spacing indicates it was a pretty old tree.

Agreed, looks like a type of pine to me too.

Yep, I’ve seen that beautiful burdseye figure in pine from the big box stores (and I always buy all they have).

I would say white pine.

I don’t use pine often, but when I see some like that it’s always gone home with me. There is always a use for wood that looks like that.
