There are, depending on what authority you consult, somewhere between 600 and 900 species of oak and a LOT of them grow in the USA. Many of them are lumped into the "red oak" group and many others into the "white oak" group.

A few of them are sometimes readily distinguishable but for the most part it is often impossible to tell what kind of oak you've got. Often, but not nearly always, you can distinguish red oaks from white oaks.

My take on what you've got is ... it's oak.

EDIT: and if I HAD to guess, I'd guess it's one of the red oaks.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.
