    I see maple as well. The tear-out is distinctive.

    Did you try shaving a bit of the end grain with a razor blade to examine with a magnifier? There are some significant differences in the structure between some otherwise similar woods. (Some don't have much difference and are more difficult to distinguish. I try to shave a spot that has at least three or four rings. Some info in section 7 on this page: https://www.wood-database.com/wood-a...ication-guide/
