that’s what I thought, but I have never seen cherry with this much blonde streaking. Guess I have now :)
Thanks!

Certainly looks like cherry to me too. The blonde streaks are sapwood.

I like the contrast of the sapwood in cherry and walnut. Makes the wood come alive.

My first thought was hickory. I don’t know for sure, just what popped into my head.

Pecan (also called Hickory) but looking at the grain, I think cherry is more likely.

Hickory and pecan are ring porous with two distinct sizes of pores. Creates very strong grain. The wood in the pics is diffuse porous where the pores are small and one size. Cherry is diffuse porous.
