Can anyone take a guess at what kind of wood this is? Dug them out of one of my barns. I would guess they are at least 30-40 years old. 2×8’s.

Ash maybe. Does it have open pores like oak?

Very unlikely to be Obeche. It was probably cut on the farm. Just my guess.

The very center of that pic shows some elm like grain (interlocking). Really need a fresh end grain pic and a closer view of the face grain (maybe rub a little water on it for the pic).

WDHLT15 will be along shortly with the answer!

Looks like White Oak to me. For the past 4 days been working on a White Oak Curio cabinet and it just has that look.
