Default Identifying Hardwoods

Hello,
I wonder if anybody knows what type of hardwood I have here. I believe some of it is Walnut but would like confirmation, and some I just don't know. I'm hoping I can post the pictures so you can all see and offer your wisdom.

It could be Kathleen but it is always hard to tell from a photo as the small details with the grain don't usually show up. There are quite a few sites you can go to that will help you identify the piece. Here's a start. https://www.google.ca/search?q=ident...GMKQyASLnorIAQ

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

end grain would be a big help too...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Hmmm. Maybe I'll have to try the 'sand and sniff' test. Does this mean I have to buy samples of all the possible choices for comparison?
