    Probably Hickory for the dark heartwood pic.
    I do have a lot of Sugar Maple in the mix too.

    2nd photo, left log - Heartwood looks awful dark for sugar maple. Looks more like cherry.

    It does look a bit like cherry on the inside, but the bark is wrong.
    It's really heavy and having worked with lots of Cherry I found it heavier than the Cherry.
    He also said there was Bitternut Hickory in the mix so it could be that.
    I bet it's Hickory.
