Just wondering what type of wood this is. It is a picture of a chair and I am wanting to either get a slab of the same type of wood for the table top, or do something with a different type of wood for the table top that would go nicely with these chairs. Any ideas or suggestions would be of great help. Thanks

Not sure, but I have seen a decent amount of cutting boards out of that wood at bed bath and beyond. Check their site and see if you can find anything

very hard to identify not seeing the bark and what it looked like before it was milled. What does it smell like?

Not the expert, but it looks like the hickory logs being discussed in another thread in this forum. Hickory isn’t uncommon for furniture use.

My guess would also be hickory.
