Default identify wood species

Hi. My name is Jeff. I was wondering if there was any way to identify various wood species... like maybe a retailer that has sample chips that I could carry around to job sites. What do folks, who don't know how to identify woods, do?

Welcome,
I made my own over the years.
but try this site.

Also check your local supplier, (a real one; not Lowes, HD) I know Georgia-Pacific used to have them.
