I’d say oak or ash, but it’s kind of hard to tell from my phone.

I see no rays in the end grain, so not oak. It looks more like ash than anything else.

Definitely looks like a lot of ash I’ve cut up lately, the grain looks a little like red oak, but the color has me leaning more toward ash.

Well, I know red oak really well and this is not it, so I am going to go with ash. Thanks for the input. Really appreciate it.

Ash. When I run out of red oak and need a little piece to finish a project I use Ash because they are real close. Most people will not pick up on the difference. PlusAsh is a little cheaper.

Black oak is used a lot for pallet wood. If it is low grade red oak that is used as well. Looks more red oakish with the color and pours on the end grain.
