I got 7 out of 12, and I must say that if you can tell the difference between, Hickory, Pecan and Almond on those pieces, you really need to stop looking at wood. Those 3 are so close.

You suck? I only got 1 right. At least I recognised the one I do most of my woodprojects with. Oak

This tread may be road map material? Thanks, JD for taking the time!
Maybe others can share pics of the same woods, JD, since they vary visually geographically?

lol... this is funny... i find myself driving by people's houses (that have just cut their tree up and it's sitting out ready for pickup), and am constantly wondering what type of tree that is and can i use it... i was gonna make some sort of "quick reference guide" (to carry with me) with pics of different local woods to help me... so this thread coming up may actually aid to that... thank you!
