    I see silver maple in there and the pieces with the whitish bark look to me as either white oak or a swamp white oak.

    I think I see White Oak, some Black Cherry in the background, maybe a Red Oak or some sort of maple on the left side - bark looks good for Red Oak, but I am not sure the wood is the right color. If you can show us individual pieces at least we could all comment on the same wood. I'm not sure that would lead to a consensus any sooner, but it would help everyone disagree more precisely.

    Looks like Oak to me too. That white colored flakey barked round could be Ironwood, but also looks a lot like White Oak?
