All right, what is this?

Old wood flooring from my house, using a few pieces I cut out to do some old floor register patching and making a few other things from it.

I thought it was doug fir, now I am not so sure.

My monitor color sucks, but
it looks like white oak from here.

Rub a little oil on it, see what
it looks like then?

I'm with Neo, white oak is first thought.

Is there any hint to medullary rays?

Fir is out because of the open grain.

The smell of reclaimed wood is often different than new lumber. Especially when just trimming the ends.

What are we trying to do here anyway?

Can you get a better lit, in focus shot
of the end grain?
From what you say it could be chestnut,
but I haven't seen that much quarter sawn.
