What part of the US it came from and any information about the tree would be helpful.

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.

A picture of the bark would also help.

Tight grain, maybe Oak? That is just a guess. Somebody's got to know.

Thank you, somewhere in Minnesota!

I'll try to get a shot of the bark.

Thank you all! I thought maybe Oak but it seems kind light weight for that but I could easily be mistaking.

Default ID Slab

Hi

By the the grain, bark, color ... it probably is maple probably hard maple but it could be soft maple. I've been cutting a bit of it lately(Wi). You can tell the difference by the weight/density with hard being denser.
